We are working with some fantastic companies to make the Bottom of the Ruck Awards a massive success. Leo and Beth would particularly like to thank the following:
We are delighted to be partnering with RugbyRocks7s as of 2012 and raising money for their main charity, the Prostate Cancer Charity.
RugbyRocks is a mass-participation sports and music festival which launched in 2010 at The Athletic Ground and Old Deer Park, Richmond. The initial idea was to fuse the exciting game of rugby sevens with live music and create a top festival atmosphere.
The festival has grown fast and in June 2011 they welcomed more than 140 sports teams to RugbyRocks London – around 2,000 players alone taking part in rugby tens, touch rugby and netball as well as sevens. The festival line-up has included Feeder, The Pigeon Detectives, The Parlotones, Just Jack, and Xfm’s Eddy Temple-Morris. Teams have jetted in from South Africa, the USA, France, Holland, Sweden, Germany and Portugal to give the festival a truly international flavour. As well as those playing sport, there have been over 5000 spectators at RugbyRocks festivals taking in all the music, sport on giant screens and sampling some of the finest festival food and drink on offer.
2011 saw the launch of RugbyRocks Edinburgh, and the portfolio of events is now a trio with RugbyRocks Yorkshire also taking place in the summer of 2012.
