This week is one of our busiest of the entire year! We are bustling about preparing for the Bangkok International Tens Tournament. Not only is this the “big game” we spend most of the year practising for, it’s also the main fundraiser for the Nak Suu Rugby Academy as the it is the main sponsored charity. Pumping rugby balls, sizing shoes and uniforms, setting up information booths and buying massive amounts of food are just a few of the preparations. Of course, lots and lots of rugby PRACTICE is required.
Last year, our under 11 team won first place in the tournament. What an incredible self-esteem and confidence booster for the boys. The over 11 yrs. team did excellent as well as they came in 2nd place.
The tournament this year will run from the 18th -19th of February at Bangkok Patana School with the youth rugby games played from 8 am to noon. The men’s games will be played in the afternoon with twenty-two international teams competing.
Three Nak Suu teams are registered in the youth program this year: under 16 boys, under 12 boys, and under 11 mixed. This is the first time our girls will be playing and they are so very excited about it!
This event is made possible by dedicated volunteers and sponsors.
