O2 Scrum on the Beach 2009

The dates for Scrum on the Beach 2009 have been announced, with another eight events taking place across the country.

Paul Sackey will be fronting the events for O2, with beach rugby competitions taking place at each venue. Teams will have the chance to compete in a tag tournament at Twickenham in September.

From what Sackey says, it might not be all about skill. “O2 Scrum on the Beach is a great way to have fun and stay involved with rugby this summer. This year we’re looking for some seriously stylish teams – with the most impressive getting to play at Twickenham in September. That should give you even more of an incentive to get down to the events and show off your skills.”

As well as getting involved in a game of beach rugby, you can test out your skills such as kicking, passing, running and tackling in the state of the art rugby Play Zone or simply chill out and enjoy the entertainment.

O2 customers can also access the exclusive O2 blueroom on the Beach, a VIP chill-out area with free massages and refreshments. They can also try out their speed reaction skills on ‘Batak Duel’ and try to beat one of the England players’ top scores. To find out more about the events, visit www.o2.co.uk/playon.
