Rugby Minis tournament 

We have announced our support for a record ninth year for the annual Dunbar Rugby Football Club’s Minis Tournament.


This year’s event will be hosted at Hallhill Healthy Living Centre in Dunbar on Sunday 12 May 2019, and it will attract around 500 children from ages P3 to P7 from across East Lothian, the Borders, and Edinburgh to take part.


Continuing our support for the Dunbar Minis Tournament is a great chance reinforce our commitment to the community as Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland comments: “We’re proud to continue our support for this very successful local event that has seen its numbers of players grow year on year.  


It’s also become a popular fixture in the local community calendar with over 1,000 spectators visiting the club to enjoy this fun family event that encourages a healthy participation in sport.


“Our new development of homes at Albany Grange in Dunbar continues where our successful Gospatrick Grange finished and offers an impressive range of new homes that are as popular as ever, which undoubtedly attracts new families to the area.  


The Dunbar Mini Rugby Tournament has become one of the annual highlights on our development calendar and we’re looking forward to supporting such a great community event once again.”


Justin Pearce, Dunbar Rugby Club President adds:  “We’re thrilled to have secured Taylor Wimpey East Scotland as our main sponsor for the ninth year in a row.  This partnership allows us to deliver a great community event of sport that attracts teams and spectators from across the local area, which is a great showcase for the club and the town of Dunbar itself.


“Our tournament is the only minis event that recognises every player from every team with a participation medal.  Our sponsorship from Taylor Wimpey helps us to maintain this key aspect of the event whilst helping us to reinforce that getting involved and playing a sport for fun and fitness is a positive life choice.


“The Club enjoys fantastic support from its sponsors, volunteers, coaches, referees, parents and most importantly every minis rugby player who ensures that the tournament remains a great success each year


“We’re looking forward to one of the biggest fixtures in the club’s calendar, and we hope to see as many members of the local community at the event as possible to support their local team!”
