For those who don’t know about Beach Rugby, here is a simple explanation: games have the duration of ten minutes. Each team has 12 players, five in-field while the rest wait anxiously outside. You can call for any sub as you like, there’s no limit, and the only rule is that you have to leave or enter the field by the try line area.
Tries count as one point each, there’s no kicking the ball, no rucks and you have to keep the ball alive. If the tackler catches you and holds you up for more than two seconds, a quick-tap penalty will be awarded to the defending team. There are no scrums, no lineouts or kicks. In beach rugby, there is only running with the ball! Passing it, scoring tries, tackle and turnover while the tackled player is more usually not on the ground (no rucks allowed).
Beach Rugby is All Go!!
There’s no place for failed tackles, you have to keep up the pace. And in the sand, just keep running and supporting your team mates. Sides with the best handling skills are the very best,and Last Word on Rugby Portuguese writer Francisco Isaac says;
“above all else remember… don’t lose the ball!”
It’s quite an entertaining game to play and to watch. A festival weekend awaits both participants, and spectators. Quick paced action, it keeps anyone watching it interested.
So with that quick explanation, you now understand the many reasons why Figueira Beach Rugby in every July is the place to be.
Hire a car, or travel on a bus or plane [or transfer your team, if you’re playing] and head to Figueira Beach Rugby to watch and live-large at an incredible tournament.
The 2014 FBRI women final was surrounded by a great atmosphere. Benfica (PT) and Dragon Flyers (FR) reached the finals without savoring the taste of defeat. The French side knew already that reaching the final they would take the first EBRA women title home. However Benfica girls were more commited than ever to show their potential. After 10 minutes of intense dispute, the Portuguese team surprised the favorites ripping the victory from their hearts.

FBRI : Quem são os beachlanders ? BL : Os Beachlanders são uma equipa de Beach Rugby, constituída por 12 jogadores da zona centro, e é basicamente um grupo de amigos que tem o gosto pela modalidade e prazer em jogar só pela diversão e pelo ambiente do Beach Rugby.
FBRI : Como surgiu a ideia de criarem uma equipa apenas dedicada ao beach rugby? BL : A ideia de criar esta equipa, apenas dedicada ao Beach Rugby, surgiu com uma chamada feita pelo nosso treinador Manuel Natário , antes de uma sessão de fisioterapia, há um ano atras, ao nosso jogador Matheus rocha com a iniciativa de criar uma equipa com o objetivo de numa primeira fase ir jogar ao Ericeira Beach Rugby, não só para experimentar um novo torneio em condições outrora desconhecidas, mas também para unir um grupo de grandes amigos e fazer uma grande festa em torno do ambiente que é esta vertente da modalidade. Criamos também esta equipa, porque todos queremos deixar a nossa marca no Beach Rugby nacional, e acho que por si já fizemos história, talvez por termos sido a primeira equipa só de Beach Rugby sub 16 da zona centro a aventurar-se neste desafio ambicioso, e que esperemos que dure por muitos e bons anos.
FBRI:Qual é a vossa opinião sobre o Beach Rugby?
BL: O Beach Rugby é uma vertente do rugby em que vale apena se investir, não só porque a nível financeiro deve gerar bom lucro, devido ao grande aglomerado de gente que se reúne para ir aos eventos, mas também pelo ambiente festivo que se cria em torno do torneio acabando por dar mais “ pica” aos jogadores para entrarem na areia e darem tudo por tudo pela sua equipa para no final de cada jogo darem aquele mágico mergulho ao mar. É também de louvar as iniciativas feitas, nestes últimos anos, pela direção do torneio, em que por exemplo por cada ensaio doam uma certa quantia, ou aos bombeiros ou a uma instituição de caridade .
FBRI: Sendo de Coimbra, imaginamos que o Figueira Beach Rugby faça parte do vosso imaginário! O que representa para vocês esse torneio?
BL: Sim, sendo nos uma equipa conimbricense, o Figueira Beach Rugby tem um carinho especial para nos. todos os nossos jogadores já participaram no torneio, e já todos o ganharam no escalão sub 16 e foram finalistas no escalão sub 14. Os nossos jogadores já não são estreantes neste torneio, e já sabem a exigência deste torneio. Para nos este torneio é como uma casa, visto que jogamos perante os nossos adeptos.
FBRI: Quais as aspirações dos Beachlanders para o futuro ?
BL: Como já dissemos anteriormente os Beachlanders são uma equipa criada por um grupo de amigos, dai o nosso principal objetivo ser sempre a diversão/lazer do jogo. Os nossos objetivos a curto prazo são ganhar o Figueira Beach Rugby, e tentar fazer uma integração a nível sénior no ano seguinte (2020/2021). Os nossos objetivos a medio/longo prazo são, competir pelo pódio no Figueira Beach Rugby (sénior), completar todo o circuito de Beach Rugby a nível nacional e completar algumas das etapas europeias, dai também ser importante o figueira Beach Rugby para a nossa aprendizagem, por ser dos melhores torneios a nível mundial. Ambicionamos também perlongar esta aventura por mais e bons anos.
FBRI: Que mensagem gostariam de deixara toda a comunidade #BeachRugbyMadness?
BL: A única mensagem que nos ocorre, é para não deixarem de investir nesta vertente do jogo, visto que mostra um versão mais descontraída e lúdica da modalidade sem nunca perder os espirito competitivo e para continuarem o excelente trabalho que têm vindo a desenvolver, que eu considero que tem tido bastante sucesso devido à nova fornada de equipas que se têm vindo a formar, o que significa que existe cada vez mais atração por esta modalidade . Por fim, só nos resta agradecer por esta oportunidade de nos darmos a mostrar a Beach Rugby Nacional.
BL : The Beachlanders are a Beach Rugby team, made up of 12 players from the center region of Portugal, and are basically a group of friends who love get together just for the fun and atmosphere of Beach Rugby
FBRI : How did you come up with the idea of creating a team just dedicated to beach rugby?
BL : The idea of creating this team, fully dedicated to Beach Rugby, came up with a call made by our coach Manuel Natário, before a physiotherapy session, a year ago, to our player Matheus rocha with the challenging him to create a team at first only to participate in the Ericeira Beach Rugby tournament, not only to have a new experience, but also to unite a group of great friends and enjoy the party atmosphere so unique in Beach Rugby. We also created this team, because we all want to leave our mark in the Portuguese Beach Rugby. I think that for ourselves we have already made history, perhaps because we were the first only U16 Beach Rugby team in our region to venture into this ambitious challenge, and that we hope it will last for many good years.
FBRI : What is your opinion about Beach Rugby?
BL : Beach Rugby is a rugby format that is worth investing in, not only because at a financial level it should generate good profit, due to the large crowd of people that get together to attend the events, but also because of the party atmosphere that is created around of the tournament, giving the players more “bites” to get in the sand and give everything for their team so that at the end of each game they can take that magical dip into the sea. It is also to be praised the initiatives made, in the last few years, by the tournament organizers, in which, for example, for each try they donate a certain amount, either to firefighters or to a charity.
FBRI : Being from Coimbra, we imagine that Figueira Beach Rugby is part of your imagination! What does this tournament represent for you?
BL: Yes, being a team from Coimbra, Figueira Beach Rugby has a special meaning for us. All of our players have already participated in the tournament, and they have all won it in the U 16 level and were finalists in the U 14 level. Our players are no longer new to this tournament, and they already know how challenging this tournament can be. For us this tournament is like a home, as we play in front of our fans.
FBRI : What are the aspirations of the Beachlanders for the future?
BL : As we said before, Beachlanders are a team created by a group of friends, so our main goal is always to have fun. Our short-term goals are to win Figueira Beach Rugby, and try to integrate at a senior level the following year (2020/2021). Our medium / long term goals are to compete for the podium at Figueira Beach Rugby (senior), complete the entire Beach Rugby circuit at national level and complete some of the European stages, hence the Fig Tree Beach Rugby is also important for our learning , for being one of the best tournaments worldwide. We also aim to carry on this adventure for more and good years.
FBRI :What message would you like to leave with the entire #BeachRugbyMadness community?
BL: The only message that occurs to us is not to stop investing in this format of the game, as it shows a more relaxed and playful version of rugby, without ever losing the competitive spirit and to continue the excellent work that they have been developing, which I consider which has been quite successful due to the new batch of teams that have been coming up, which means that there is more and more excitement for this sport. Finally, we can only thank you for this opportunity to show us the #BeachRugbyMadness community worldwide!
The idea of organizing the Figueira Beach Rugby was born randomly, during an afternoon brainstorm meeting at DoctorSport office.
Beach rugby was really popular and big in Portugal in the late 90s, early 2000s. The Portuguese economy was experiencing an unprecedent boost, so companies easily thrown money into anything that would advertise their image. After that period and with the economy declining the big euros were gone.
During the first decade of this century the big beach rugby tournaments disapeared, and the hype around the sport was gone. Aware of this situation Rui Loureiro one of the DoctorSport founders ex-rugby player and coach looked at Beach Rugby as an opportunity and the idea of bringing beach rugby into life seemed a good bet.
We knew that Beach Rugby image was damaged and only something good and big would succeed! Organizing it as an International Beach Rugby Festival where competitive and social rugby could cohabit around music and party, was the idea in our minds since the beginning.
As we were already expecting, skepticism was what we found most in our first approaches. Few people believed that Beach Rugby would have the power to attract and congregate so many teams from all over Europe. This skepticism was soon vanished, due our strong commitment and enthusiasm to make it happen.
The Figueira Beach Rugby International first edition back in 2010 was not the success we were expected, only 24 teams attended the event. We were exhausted and the pockets were empty, however the feedback was huge and we knew we had just launched something special that remains till our days!
FBRI:Hi Christian! The Minots have confirmed their presence in the Figueira Beach Rugby 2020 edition. What are your expectations for the tournament?
CQ: The Minots will be present at the Figueira da Foz tournament, because I consider as many people that the Figeira da Foz tournament is the most important beach rugby tackle tournament, both in terms of the number of teams and the level of these teams. The Minots make the Figueira da Foz tournament, because it is a very well organized tournament where we meet a lot of foreign and Portuguese teams, it allows us to share impressions on the future of the beach rugby.
All the major nations are represented, not with two players from a country plus ten local players (as in other tournaments), but with teams that are really made by players os its nationality representing their nations.
My main expectation is to be able to exchange ideas with the other teams as we have been doing for a long time, last year, we exchanged a lot with the CDUL, the BOULBEACH, the MAGNETS, the RANDUBA, the PACIFICS ISLANDERS, which are teams with whom we get along very well.
FBRI:You are one of the most awarded coaches in the history of Beach Rugby. How do you see the present and the future of beach rugby?
CQ: Currently, beach rugby is going through a crisis. I think that some people aim more for personal interest than collective interests which obviously harms the progress of beach rugby.
In France it is very complicated, for the moment the French rugby federation, only recognizes touch beach rugby , which makes us outlaws, but as I am part of the national beach commission, I try on my scale to get things done, I’m going to try to bring FFR managers to Figueira to show them what beach rugby tackle really is.
It is very complicated to guess the future of beach rugby as long as the people at the head of an association do not agree to exchange with others, and to accept positive criticisms aimed at advancing the beach.
FBRI:What message would you like to send to all the teams that will be present in Figueira?
CQ: We are sure that the teams will respond present at Figueira, the beach where the best teams compete, we invite you to RANDUBA 2, MAGNETS, PACIFICS ISLANDERS, BOULBEACH, PADOVA with the legendary coach Enrique Alfa Gottarlo, we hope that our RUSSIAN friends will be present, the CDUL and SHARKS as well as all the Portuguese teams who respond present each year, to be able to make the biggest beach rugby festival in the world.
The Minots are happy to find the old formula over two days.
I am communicating my calendar with the Minots, you will understand that there is no EBRA tournaments since I have been forbidden to participate in any EBRA tournament. By law, when a person is sentenced, he is entitled to a defense, unfortunately not in a dictatorship. …….
The Minots may be doing tournaments without me, but I can’t name them.

FBRI : Salut Christian! Les Minutos ont confirmé leur présence dans l’édition Figueira Beach Rugby 2020. Quelles sont vos attentes pour le tournoi?
CQ : Les Minots seront présents au tournoi de Figueira da Foz , car je considère comme beaucoup de personnes que le tournoi de Figeira da Foz est le tournoi de beach rugby à plaquer le plus important , tant au nombre d’équipes que du niveau de ces équipes.
Les Minots font le tournoi de Figueira da Foz , car c’est un tournoi très bien organisé ou nous rencontrons énormément d’équipes étrangères et Portugaises , cela nous permet de communiquer sur l’avenir du beach.
Toutes les nations majeures sont représentées , non pas avec deux joueurs d’un pays plus dix joueurs locaux (comme sur d’autres tournois), mais avec des équipes réellement constituées et représentant leur nation.
Mon attente principale est de pouvoir échanger des idées avec les autres équipes comme nous le faisons depuis longtemps, l’année dernière, nous avons beaucoup échangé avec les CDUL , les BOULBEACH , les MAGNETS, les RANDUBA , les PACIFICS ISLANDERS , les SHARKS , qui sont des équipes avec qui nous nous entendons très bien .
FBRI : Vous êtes l’un des entraîneurs les plus récompensés de l’histoire de Becah Rugby. Comment voyez-vous le présent et l’avenir du beach rugby?
CQ : Actuellement , le beach rugby traverse une crise, je pense que certaines personnes visent plus l’intérêt personnel que les intérêt collectifs ce qui évidement nuit à l’avancée du beach rugby.
En France c’est très compliqué, pour le moment la fédération Française de rugby, ne reconnait que le beach rugby à toucher , ce qui fait de nous des hors la loi , mais comme je fais partie de la commission nationale de beach , j’essaie a mon échelle de faire avancer les choses , je vais essayer de faire venir à Figueira des responsables FFR pour leur montrer ce qu’est réellement les beach rugby à plaquer.
Il est très compliqué de deviner l’avenir du beach rugby tant que les personnes à la tête d’une association n’acceptent pas d’échanger avec les autres , et d’accepter les critiques positives visant à faire avancer le beach .
FBRI : Quel message souhaitez-vous envoyer à toutes les équipes qui seront présentes à Figueira?
CQ : Nous sommes sûrs que les équipes vont répondre présentes au beach de Figueira da Foz , le beach ou les meilleures équipes s’affrontent , nous donnons rendez vous aux RANDUBA 2 , MAGNETS , PACIFICS ISLANDERS , BOULBEACH , PADOVA avec le mythique entraîneur Enrique Alfa Gottarlo, nous espérons que nos amis RUSSES seront présents , les CDUL et SHARKS ainsi que toutes les équipes Portugaises qui répondent présents chaque année , pour pouvoir faire la plus grosse kermesse de beach au monde .
Les Minots sont heureux de retrouver l’ancienne formule sur deux jours.
Je te communique mon calendrier avec les Minots, tu comprendras qu’il n’y a aucun match EBRA vu que j’ai été exclu, en droit, lorsqu’une personne est condamnée , elle a droit a une défense, en dictature non ……..
Les Minots feront peut-être des tournois sans moi, mais je ne peux les citer.

Tu vois, nous avons un programme chargé ……
The Corona Virus Pandemia has hit the sports world with violence, with many if not all the competitions around the world to be suspended, and major events cancelled or postponed. Uncertainty is the main feeling right now. No one knows for how long this situation is to last. Will this situation affect the Beach Rugby Season?!
We decided to get in contact with some of the most experienced European Beach Rugby organizers (Portugal, Italy and Poland) to find out what their opinions are about the possible effects of Corona Virus Pandemia in the present and Future of Beach Rugby.
Despite all the uncertainty about how long we will be in this situation, all the official informations point out for a sports events ban period of 30 to 60 days. Figueira Beach Rugby is still 105 days away. We strongly believe that by the time of our event´s inaugural whistle, Corona Virus won´t be more than a sad memory!
We think the European Beach Rugby season will not be affected by this awful situation, and strongly believe that beach Rugby can play a very important role in the Rugby World pushing the sport forward after a long period of absence.
Our message to all the Beach Ruggers out there is to Keep Strong, Keep United, Keep Fit, and see you all in the Golden Sands of Figueira next July!!!
It is difficult to tell now what we will do. As everyone around the World we hope that it will finish with the minimum number of loses . But we have the several issues to affect: dates, internal official regulation and overall medical and official recommendations, RE statements, travel issues for the participating teams (quarantine in and out of the countries) + visas, finances and etc…
We are able to make it happen, but of course we must think about different scenarios. I think we are not even on the middle of the problems – some more will definitely come. And even corona virus will not kill tournament at all, global economic crisis will definitely come:))… But we are stress protected. And finally snow will come in any cases to replace the sand:))))
FBRI: Hi Urryel! We are very happy to confirm the presence of The Vultures in the 11th Figueira Beach Rugby edition. Tell us a bit more about this team…..
Vultures: This team is mainly formed be former Benfica Rugby players, with a lot of experience who had contributed a lot for the club´s legacy. We had never lost contact with each other, so to strenghten even more our friendship we decided to create this team “The Vultures”, which is inspired in Benfica Rugby mascot (eagle).
FBRI : You participated many times in the event, palying for more than one team. What´s your opinion regarding the Figueira Beach Rugby?
Vultures: Without a doubt the level increases every year, not just the foreigner but also the Portuguese teams are stornger every year. We enjoy a lot playing at this level. Also the level of organization is amazing, ensuring the teams everything needed!
Urryel Torres is a long time Figueira Beach Rugby friend
FBRI : Which message would you like to send out to all the teams joining the #BeachRugbydness?
Vultures: Enjoy and have a good time! P.S. Be aware of the dangerous Figueira nightlife 🙂
FBRI : Olá Urryel! É com enorme prazer que recebemos a confirmação da participação da equipa The Vultures na 11ª edição do Figueira Beach Rugby International. Conta-nos um pouco sobre esta equipa, quem são de onde vêm……
Vultures: Esta equipa é essencialmente formada por ex-jogadores do benfica, com uma vasta experiência nas em competições nacionais, que deixaram a sua marca no clube. Nunca perdemos os contactos uns dos outros e para estreitar mais a nossa amizade, decidimos formar esta equipa: “The Vultures” (Os Abutres). O nome deve-se ao facto de querermos fugir à temática “águia do benfica” hehe.
FBRI: Tu já participaste várias vezes no FBRI, inclusivé por diferentes equipas. Qual a tua opinião sobre o torneio?
Vultures: Sem dúvida, o nível do Figueira beach rugby tem vindo a subir de ano para ano, isso nota-se nas equipas estrangeiras, e não só, que têm participado, é sempre bom competirmos com qualidade. A Organização também tem um papel fundamental, proporcionando tudo o que as equipas precisam.
FBRI : Qual a mensagem que em nome dos The Vultures gostarias de enviar a todas as equipas que participarão no evento?
Vultures: Que aproveitem e tenham um bom torneio!!! P.S. – cuidado com a noite da Figueira hihi!!!
FBRI : Hello Nicolòl! We are very glad to have you and your team mates participating in Figueira Beach Rugby 2020 Edition! Tell us a bit about who the Beach Boars Team are!
BB: We are a pretty young team from Turin, with some friends and former players joining us from all around for the occasion. We took part to our first beach tournament last summer (Barcellona beach rugby, where we won 🙂 ) and we decided to step up this year.
FBRI : What are your expectations about the tournament?
BB: We expect to be playing the most entertaining rugby and, from outside, to be the loudest spectators, in order to allow our Casanova (Frank) to hunt unseen.
FBRI : Which message you would like to sent out to everyone who will be joining you during the Figueira Beach Rugby?
