London Beach Rugby in Potters Field Park

Due to its past success, London Beach Rugby is back for its fifth year and at a new venue: Potters Field Park. 5-a-side teams play short games of seven minutes with players allowed up to three touchers/ tackles before needing to pass the ball. All of this happens on a specially created sand pitch within an inflatable perimeter. Sponsored by the Cornish ale Doom Bar, this event raises money for charity and is free for the public to come a long and watch. It has proven to be a fun way to spend an afternoon with mates by putting a team together and getting involved or a fun way to have a few drinks, support charity and watch some sport for free.

If you’re interested in finding out more about future events in Westminster, London, Kennington and the surrounding areas, feel free to drop by any of our offices – we’ll be glad to provide you with a list. We can arrange viewings of properties for sale and properties for rent within walking distance of some of these popular venues.
