The BRFU is using Try Time Touch Rugby to encourage more people to try rugby and to get more active. Secretary Kathie Daniel, said, “With recent health statistics indicating a sharp increase in non-communicable diseases, including those related to obesity, we want to get Barbados moving again! Rugby provides a great way for people of all ages and shapes to have fun and get fit. Our men’s sevens team, the Barbados JetBlues have just returned from a US tour where they won two of the three tournaments they entered, and we are hosting the RTEK Rugby Americas North 7s in September, and Mitsubishi Rugby Barbados World 7s in December at the iconic Kensington Oval. So you can see that rugby also has the potential to boost sports tourism.”
