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 15th Touch Rugby Tournament on the weekend of June 2nd & 3rd, 2018.

The deadline for registration of teams is Monday April 30th, 2018.
The deadline for payment of fees is Thursday May 10th, 2018.
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 a new venue this 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 2nd with round-robin matches and conclude with a round of finals on the Sunday, June 3rd. 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.

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.

Good luck to all teams! See you in June!
