Hi All, With just over 2 weeks to go before our first beach X-league tournament. I have been wondering what the appetite would be for Beach RL and what form and locations. Would people prefer the X-League/touch format or would the appeal of full contact be there? Looking also to locations Bridlington is probably the best in Yorkshire with it having the largest sandy beach and seafront facilities other locations I have thought of.... Could Tynemouth (Long Sands beach) be an option for the North East, the obvious one for Lancashire is Blackpool. Could Rhyl be an interest for Wales/Merseyside? And would Margate attract teams from London/South East? Although the full format of the game should be the primary at the moment only Swansea and Bournemouth hold regular beach rugby union events so the market place especially now with "Staycation" being a bit more fashionable is there and there are plenty of locations around the UK that could be used that are ripe for Rugby League and development. After this year's Brid Beach X-League event we are hoping to host each year in Brid however it would be interesting to hear thoughts especially from new clubs or those struggling to get a squad of min of 15 week in week out could the option be a beach tournament for the community game? Or extension of the season for Beach Rugby League
