Dunbar RFC’s minis tournament welcomes between 300 and 400 budding young rugby players from P3-7 from across East Lothian, the Borders and Edinburgh.

The competition has been sidelined for the last two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, it returns to Hallhill on Sunday (May 15) and for the 10th year is sponsored by Taylor Wimpey East Scotland.

Justin Pearce, Dunbar RFC president, was delighted the tournament was returning and the sponsorship was continuing.

He said: “This ongoing partnership allows us to deliver a great community event of sport that will attract teams and spectators from across the local area, which is a great showcase for the club and the town of Dunbar itself.

“Our tournament continues to be the only minis rugby event that recognises every player from every team with a participation medal.

“Our sponsorship from Taylor Wimpey helps us to maintain this key aspect of the event whilst helping us to reinforce that getting involved and playing a sport for fun and fitness is a positive life choice.

“The club enjoys fantastic support from its sponsors, volunteers, coaches, referees, parents and most importantly every minis rugby player who ensures that the tournament remains a great success.

“We’re looking forward to the return of one of the biggest fixtures in the club’s calendar, and we hope to see as many members of the local community at the event as possible to support their local team!”

Kirsty McGill, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, was “delighted” the event was returning. She said: “We hope this event will once again become a popular fixture in the local community calendar with spectators visiting the club to enjoy a fun, family event that encourages a healthy participation in sport.”
