Tokushima Touch Rugby Tournament

Welcome! As part of the AJET Games event calendar and in conjunction with the Tokushima Touch Association, AJET Tokushima is hosting its 17th Touch Rugby Tournament on the weekend of June 6th & 7th, 2020.

The deadline for registration of teams is Friday April 26th, 2019.
The deadline for payment of fees is Friday May 10th, 2019.
Get in quick!

Teams of JETs, friends and Japanese people will come together in Tokushima-ken to enjoy competitive sport and good company. The main venue for the tournament will be at the same place as last year: Buburu Park, located by the Yoshino River in Higashi Miyoshi, 15 minutes from our cabins and BBQ site at Saburo no Sato.

The tournament will commence on Saturday, June 6th and on Sunday, June 7th. A barbecue party is planned for the Saturday evening at Saburo no Sato, with time for a visit to a local onsen and to relax after a hard day’s play. This year due to a change in organizers, we will NOT be providing food, drinks, etc for the barbecue but will rent out the area for everyone to come and cook their own food.

As with all AJET Games events, the tournament ultimately hopes to promote good relations between JETs and the Japanese community. It is also an excellent opportunity for local companies to get involved in promoting cultural exchange through sport.

The Tournament Committee is looking forward to welcoming about 200 players and supporters to Tokushima in June. The information in this Tournament Handbook should help teams with their preparations and ensure that everyone can enjoy the weekend. Any questions can be directed to the Committee in English or Japanese.

Next, please take a look at our Competition Format.

Good luck to all teams! See you in June!
