Safer playing on Sand 

Beach Rugby

The great thing about playing on sand is that there is less impact on your joints and the impacts of tackles and collisions are softened by this. 

Thankfully over the years, there have been very few serious injuries at Majorca Beach Rugby Festival: dislocations, a few cuts, and grazes but much less than when playing on grass. No boots help too !!

Still keep the tackling low as is now the directive for Rugby worldwide.  

The flip side is it is harder to run fast, sidestep, balance and it is much more tiring. 

Top physical benefits of exercising on sand 

1. Great for the core as you are unbalanced most of the time.

2. Injury prevention due to lower impact.  

3. You use 1.5 times more aerobic energy exercising on sand and 2.5 times more anaerobic energy. 

4. Muscle soreness (dreaded DOMS) is less from playing on sand!

5. It is more fun even if it is harder!

Medical Facilities at the Majorca Beach Rugby 

The awesome Organisers have 2 doctors on-site, 2 physios, and First Aiders. The nearest hospital is just 20 minutes away.
