Dear TRU members,
I am reaching out as a fellow rugby enthusiast & professional, and representative of the Rugby Business Executives Association (RBEA). RBEA is working with USA Rugby and USA Touch (Rugby) to bring coed touch rugby to the World Corporate Games Nov. 16-19 in Houston.
The World Corporate Games is a world-wide competition to showcase corporate wellness in a competitive fashion. This is an incredible opportunity for a team from the USA to be crowned the “World Corporate Champions” and for future regional and local versions of the corporate games in the USA to add social rugby to their programs.
The games are primarily targeted to teams of professionals from one organization (ie, the “XYZ Corp.” team). HOWEVER, there are no eligibility rules surrounding participation. Teams are fully free to be made up of players from multiple companies, or even no company affiliation at all (a “Sport for All” team).
The cost of entry is $99 per player for teams of 8-10 through August ($125/player after August with non-profits exempt from the increase). There are three men and three women per side at any point in time. There are local men and women’s rugby clubs in Houston if supplemental players are needed. Coaching and technical resources will be available.
Here is more about the games: http://www.corporate-games.com/
