Tailor-made Rugby Tours in Spain

Rugby union in Spain is a growing team sport with over 200 clubs across the country. The national side has played at the 1999 Rugby World Cup and is considered one of the stronger European nations outside the Six Nations Championship.

Rugby is mainly played in three areas of Madrid, the Spanish Basque Country, and the region of Catalonia particularly around Barcelona.

Ladies and youth rugby is also widely played along with beach rugby. There are a number of rugby sevens tournaments throughout the country, including the Benidorm Sevens which is held in May each year.
