Tour Intinerary

This is how your weekend is structured:

After months of fundraising, arranging tour kits and generally getting excited, it’s time embark on your annual rugby tour.

Whether you are arriving by land, sea or air a friendly member of the miTour team will be on hand to welcome you to your chosen accommodation. Having received the keys to your home for the next few days, you’ll be free to enjoy the extensive facilities available at your holiday park and relax into your surroundings ahead of a weekend of rugby action.

It’s the children’s time to shine as the South Wales Rugby Festival kicks off at the impressive fields of Whitland RFC.

Your tour shuttle bus will collect your group from the holiday park to arrive at the festival site in plenty of time for your teams first kick-off. Your team will compete in the pool stages of the competition while the adults soak up the unique atmosphere of a miTour festival, and enjoy the hospitality of the host club.

Once your games are done for the day the tournament shuttle will take you on the short trip back to your holiday park, where you can enjoy the rest of the evening and plot your team’s tactics for finals day tomorrow!

Depending on the age group, your team will take part in either a round-robin (U7-U11) or waterfall (U12 & U13) type competition, U14 and upwards usually play a knock-out format.

Presentations occur after your final game of the day, all players receive a high quality participation medal.

After presentations, it's time to head back to your holiday park to enjoy the park entertainment after an exciting 2 days of rugby fun.

Sadly, it’s time to say goodbye for another year as you make your way back to your club, no doubt with memories that will last a lifetime!

Testimonials

What other rugby clubs thought of the South Wales Challenge Rugby Festival

Nice to see Dan Biggar there handing out medals and trophies, what a gentleman cheers Dan also made the kids tournament. Very well run tournament. Communications before the event were excellent and the organisation over the two days was super. All matches pretty much to time and the referees were excellent. Very friendly atmosphere there and we were allowed to leave our tent up overnight which was a bonus.

Totally Awesome Tour. I cannot thank Gareth Williams & the rest of miTour company enough. Their support, patience and attention to customer detail was spot on! Embarking on a tour for 209 people is a daunting prospect but the task was made 100 times easier with the help and support of miTours. Despite the practicable rain, we had a memorable time and the tour party will be talking about the whole experience for many years to come. I would recommend miTour to anyone and a massive thank you from myself and the Under 12's and Under 14's from Colchester Rugby Club.
