Islay Beach Rugby

June 18, 2016

On the 11th June Kilchoman took up sponsorship of the Islay Beach Rugby 2016 tournament. The beach rugby competition has gone from strength to strength over the years, attracting players from far and wide, including some ex internationals. It has become one of the highlights of the Islay calendar with plenty of local food and drink for everyone to enjoy as well as the feast of rugby on show.

The ‘Battle on the Beach’ was a huge success and thank you to Islay rfc for putting on a great event. Both mens and womens competitions were fiercely competitive and certainly not for the faint hearted! Although the sun only shone briefly on the day, a large crowd fuelled by drams of Machir Bay stayed until the end to watch the finals played out on Port Ellen beach.

Congratulations to Team 200 who came out victorious in the womens final and we are very proud to say Kilchoman won the mens competition, a third triumph in a row!

Thank you to everyone who came along and made it such a great day. Looking forward to next year already!
