2018 was a record breaking, sell out year at the Tigers Challenge in Minehead, with 215 teams and over 6000 people from all over the UK participating in the festival! On the back of this success, demand for 2019 is expected to be greater than ever. Join us for the ultimate action packed rugby tour in the South West – the Tigers Challenge at Butlin’s Minehead.
The Tigers Challenge combines a professionally organised rugby tournament for U7 – U14 teams and U13 & U15 girls teams, the superb touring facilities provided at Butlin’s award winning resort in Minehead, and a spectacular celebrity presentation ceremony to close the festival in style.
The festival itself is staged at Minehead Barbarians RFC and a selection of venues within Minehead town. All venues are within 1 mile of Butlin’s and complimentary shuttle buses are provided throughout the weekend.
Butlin’s Minehead is a jewel in the crown for the Tigers Challenge. Located right on the beach, yet on the doorstep of the great wilderness of Exmoor National Park, it really is a magnificent setting for a UK rugby tour.
After an exciting day of action at the pitches, the onsite facilities at Butlin’s are fantastic for children of all ages and adults alike. There’s a huge variety of sports and leisure activities, the Splash Waterworld with flumes, slides and wave machines, superb evening Entertainment venues and great places to eat and drink. There’s the Aerial Rope Course with the stomach churning ‘leap of faith’ and climbing wall, Multi-Sports Court, Fairground with free rides, Cinema, Go-Kart Track, Adventure Golf, Ten Pin Bowling*…. we could go on!
The evening entertainment is another key factor which sets Butlin’s apart from all other holiday centres. There’s a huge range of entertainment on offer in the premier entertainment venues. From brilliant daytime shows and spectacular evening events, there’s amazing entertainment for the whole family at Butlin’s.
