“Just wanted to say a huge thank you from Torquay U9s. We’ve just got back from the Tigers Challenge at Butlins and all of us had a fantastic time. The event was really well organised and the facilities at Butlins were second to none. We came third in the tournament and will be back next year to try and raise the Tigers Challenge Cup!”

Torquay RUFC

“This is just a quick email to thank you and all the team for the rugby tour at the Tigers Challenge. Without exception everyone had a fantastic time, enjoying both the rugby and the facilities on site. Taking that many people on tour can be quite daunting but with your assistance it all went like clockwork. ”

Worthing RFC

“On behalf of the Painswick U11s team I would like to thank you all very much for a brilliantly organised Tigers Challenge Festival at Butlins. We had a fantastic time, made all the better for us by the fact that our squad played better than they have done all year! I can imagine what an enormous amount of work it must be to organise, but it seemed to go without a hitch and everyone thought it was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.”

Painswick RFC

“Thank you all for organising a great weekend for our team. The whole thing went flawlessly from start to finish and it left me, as organiser, with little to do other than collect the money, which is never my favourite job! On the day, we knew where we needed to be at all times and our boys played their best rugby of the season which was great from our point of view. Thank you again and I’ll be recommending the Tigers Challenge to any mini rugby clubs here.”
