BEACH SPORTS TOURNAMENT IS BACK
Since the inaugural tournament in 2011 the Hong Kong Beach 5s has grown drastically in scale and popularity, cementing its place in the Hong Kong sporting calendar as a fun filled festival of sport. Organised by TCOB Media, the original idea was born in 2011 as we recognized a need for an event which allowed local Rugby talent to get involved in the 7s atmosphere.
The Beach 5s has now become Hong Kong's biggest beach festival with Rugby, Netball, Football & Dodgeball matches all day. Live music, 2 bars, delicious food, kids entertainment & an afterparty add to an all-encompassing family friendly fun day out!
The 2019 event saw Beach Rugby, Football, Netball and Dodgeball take to the sand with over 1000 competitors and 20,000 spectators over the weekend. This year's event promises to be even bigger and better.
ON THE SAND
Backed by the HKRFU, the Beach 5s kicks off Hong Kong rugby week in style. Each year sees 16 men's, 10 women's and 24 mini rugby teams compete for the coveted Beach 5s title!
It takes just 1 hour for our netball teams to fill up! With support from the Hong Kong Netball Association, teams from Singapore, Australia and the UK make their way down to the event! Once again we hosted Mini netballers in the morning, warming up the sand for the seniors in the afternoon.
2015 was the first time we introduced football at the Beach 5s, and what a success it proved to be! We will have 2 x pitches on site, and with access to the HKFA's database of over 10 000 players, we aim to sign up 32 mens and junior teams!
It's the fastest growing sport in Hong Kong! With over 1000 registered players, all with an insatiable love for fancy dress and a good time, the Dodgeball arena is one of the places to be at this years event.
After it's debut in 2011, we received non-stop requests to bring volleyball back. With the natural expansion of the event, we felt that this would be the perfect addition to the event last year and had flocks of eager volleyballers in 2019. This year we will be introducing a new 2v2 tournament to the beach as well!
