“Hi all, it was another cracking year with you at the Tigers Challenge. Our players and parents really had an awesome weekend, it’s an amazing experience for everyone involved. The presentation makes the players feel very special, to walk up on the main stage in front of hundreds is amazing.  For me as a coach and a parent it’s a proud moment as I’m sure it is for everyone.  Thanks for all the hard work and effort and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017.”

“Thank you for a great weekend at the Tigers Challenge. The Butlins resort in Bognor Regis was much better than we expected, and the tournament was well run from start to finish – we really can’t fault any of it, the organisation, prompt results, first aid cover – all were well organised.  A very tiring but satisfactory weekend.”

Braintree RFC

“I just wanted to express my thanks for a wonderful tournament on our 1st tour for Marlow Rugby Club U9’s.  The organisation of the competition was flawless.  In the true spirit of rugby, respect for the opposition amongst players and supporters was a huge highlight.  The quality, fairness and spirit of the tournament referees was simply outstanding too.  I would very highly recommend this tour as a must, especially for 1st time tourists. Butlin’s provides a tour in a box allowing the children to bond as a team in a fun and safe environment.  Thanks again.”

Marlow RFC, Minehead

Everything was perfect right down to the shuttle bus service!  Our boys had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the tour; the rugby and also the facilities offered at Butlins.We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your tours to other age groups at our club.  Thanks again.”

Bracknell RFC

“It’s really difficult when you promote a tour because you want to meet everyone’s expectations and it’s my neck on the line if the event falls short.  However you guys did it bigger and better than last year and the whole club thought it rocked!  Huge thanks to all at the Tigers Challenge for once again providing such inspiration to those just embarking on their rugby journey.  Sometimes just one comment can make it all worth it – this quote is from one of our young tour virgins!  “My son won’t go to bed, he keeps telling his dad ‘that’s the best moment of my life!’ I loved every minute of it and I’ve got
12 new brothers now…”

Monmouth RFC
