Vectis Rugby hosted Tour International’s IW Rugby Festival, where children and young teenagers from U-7 to U-15 age groups competed over two days. The event attracted more than 1,500 people. As well as excellent rugby, there was also food and drink on offer from local vendors.

As well as the hosts, eighteen different clubs attended, some from as far away as Lancashire and Leicestershire, with positive feedback from the visitors.

The Vectis teams showed excellent performances, especially in the mini section, where the U-8s, U-9s, U-10s and U-11s were highly praised by their opponents. The Vectis U-14 side were one of the runners-up in their section and put in a huge effort in their final match on Sunday’

Vectis RFC hopes to see an extensive festival return in 2025.
