Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in China, as least in terms of profile. Established in the 90’s, with its main base around Beijing, the High School programme and that of the Forces have begun to steadily improve with the input of coaches and development officers from overseas Unions. Hong Kong in particular is a place where rugby union has been long established, partly as a result of its being a British colony. In contrast to Mainland China, it has had a continuous existence dating back over a hundred years, and is of course most notable for its sevens tournaments. All tours to China will include English speaking guides that will travel with the group from the day or arrival until departure. Contact us for more information
