Festival Format

The round robin matches will be played with equal rest for all teams.  

In the U11s and U10s Festival the matches will be refereed / managed Game Manager from the 1st named club in the 1st half and the 2nd named club in the 2nd half.

Please note that the Development category is taken by Surrey Rugby to mean players genuinely inexperienced or new to the game. It is not a convenient re-classification of an old-school B, C or D team.

Our own Festivals are intended for complete age groups. No one stays at home and everyone gets competitive rugby in a friendly atmosphere.

As before there are medals for every competitor but there are no longer winners or runners up trophies. All teams will play in a round robin format and the format is set so that all teams get equal rest between games.

Savills are the lead sponsors of the Rosslyn Park Minis & Youth.

Our festivals run to time and normally finish between 12:30 and 1:30 depending on the number of matches needing to be played.

Under 11s are offered for Experienced Teams and (truly) Development teams.
