2020 Hurricanes U15 Tournament – Cancelled

It is with deep regret that College Sport Wellington (CSW) is cancelling the Hurricanes Under 15 tournament for 2020.

COVID19 has thrown up many challenges for everyone in the sport and recreation industry. There are a number of issues that are directly affecting the Hurricanes U15 boys rugby tournament, including the decrease in funding available from Community Trusts, and decreased resource (CSW, referees and grounds) due to the traditional winter sport season being extended. Many teams around the country that normally attend have also indicated that they will be still playing in their regional rugby competition at the time the tournament is meant to be happening.

As this is the was meant to be the tenth year of the tournament, CSW and the Hurricanes Youth Rugby Council are bitterly disappointed about the cancellation. I’m sure your players in the teams that were hoping to attend are as well.

College Sport Wellington and the Hurricanes Youth Rugby Council are hopeful that the tournament will return in 2021.

We do thank all funders, supporters, and secondary schools for their support of the tournament, and we hope to see you in 2021.
