2018 Minis Rugby Tour – Tigers Challenge

In 2018 we are taking part in the Tigers Challenge Event at Butlins Minehead on the May bank holiday weekend (full details of the event can be found here http://www.tigerschallenge.co.uk/_youth-rugby-tour-venues/minehead/)

There are a few difference in the way this year, essentially it will be up to individual tourists to book their own accommodation. There are a number of different types of accommodation, ranging from basic rooms to large fully featured apartments. The price of the accommodation includes access to all the usual Butlins facilities (waterpark etc), entry to the tournament and we will also arrange for a tour top  (incredibly stylish hoodie) for any children of playing age.

Please find below a link to the tour website where you can book accommodation for the tour. There are a few things note.

  1. The deadline mentioned (30th September) is a soft one, essentially there is no reserved accommodation so it is largely on a first come first served basis. The longer you leave it to book the less chance your chosen accommodation will be available. However if we didn’t put a deadline on it then no-one apply.
  2. There are lots of room/apartment options available but it should be noted that the rooms font have self catering facilities. It is probably a good idea to get tourists to share if they want to get an apartment with kitchen etc.
  3. The links are specific to each age group but this is only so that the organisers can try to locate everyone in a team similar locations. If you are booking for two age groups (for example due to different aged siblings) just pick one and use that.
  4. We will be selling adult tour tops, price to be verified but in the £20-25 range
  5. Although the bookings are done individually we will need the tour reps to keep track of who is going and if they require  any adult tour tops, I have included a tracking sheet for you to use with this email. This is particularly important where people are booking for siblings in different age groups.
