NEWinRugby Fest intends to be a Not For Profit European Sport Event and it aims to promote women and girls engagement in sports through rugby (tag, touch and 7’s), being that at the role of athlete, coach, referee, or other.
After a local preparation stage (education, training, coaching, workshops, seminars and so on in each participating country/institution) there will be a international festive girls and women rugby tournament during a full weekend, staged in Lisbon, Portugal, with all the teams of all age groups and personnel involved. This event is meant to be a celebration of sports and of the involvement of girls and women. With different levels of competitiveness, it is also an opportunity to build an European network, in rugby, through the interchange of experiences and the share of good practices.
