Why the Fijian Touch Cup is Great for Gals

Girls, we all know the drill! Organising a rugby tour that keeps the whole team happy can be tough. You all wanna head out to play some high class touch rugby against challenging opponents but teaming this with a bit a R&R can be tricky. Good job you’ve found the Fijian Touch Cup!

This is a touch competition with a difference, you get the best of both worlds; a little touch of paradise and world-class touch rugby too.

The Fijian Cup is great for you and your gals for heaps of reasons, let’s break it down!

Easy to Organise
We feel you, trying to organise hotels, flights, transfers and matches for your tour makes life unnecessarily hectic. Even if you and your team head to a touch rugby festival chance are you’ll be camping or having to sort your own accommodation and hotel owners aren’t too fond of hosting a team of rowdy rugby players…can’t think why?!

sHere at the Fijian Touch Cup we’ve removed all the hassle and stress for you. All you and your gals have to do is register your team, each pay your $50 deposit and you’re halfway there!

Your Fijian Touch Cup package includes 5* accommodation at the Sheraton Fiji, return flights to Sydney, Brisbane or Auckland, transfers, team activities and a big breakfast buffet every morning.

That’s on to top of competition entry, prizes worth $50,000+ and an epic end of festival awards night!

To make organising your trip that bit easier we’ve created the Fijian Touch Cup Monthly Payment Plan so if some of your gals are ready to pay now and others need to spread the cost that’s no worries. We’ve intentionally kept out package costs as low as $1,499 in hope that everyone can join us in Fiji.

Epic Team Activities

Finding team activities to do on tour that aren’t gimmicky is kinda hard. Finding tour activities that everyone is genuinely happy to take part in is even harder. We have a whole host of kick ass team activities for you and the gals to enjoy when you’re not on the pitch.

Your packages include free, unlimited paddle boarding, snorkelling and kayaking. The gentle shores of the Pacific in Fiji are perfect for stand up paddle boarding and a great way to work that core for a bit of active recovery!

Fiji is home to some of the best snorkelling spots in the world. Remember to bring the GoPro to capture the underwater magic.

If you and your gals are in the mood for a party (and let’s face it you will be!) you can join us on Cloud 9!

Cloud 9 is the ideal rugby tour treat and is Fiji’s only multi level floating party platform. Cloud 9 features a state of the art sound system and classic Italian wood-fired pizzeria. This is where the party’s at! Make sure you and your gals book your spot on Cloud 9 as soon as possible; everyone want a piece of the action!

How could we forget! If you’re feeling like you need a bit of pampering between matches you can head to the Sheraton Fiji’s 5* spa complex. You and the gals can opt into a half-day spa package extravaganza; the perfect way to recover from a tough day on the pitch!

Unbeatable Value for Money

Having spoken to players like you we realised that value for money is important and that you and your gals deserve to have the time of your lives while on rugby tour.

We looked at the cost of touch rugby festivals across the Pacific, NZ and Oz and realised that we could do better…so we have!

We are proud to offer you and your gals unbeatable value for money, we hope that this means everyone can join us in the world’s greatest sporting paradise.

The Fijian Touch Cup programme of events has been intentionally designed to give you and the team a chance to experience world-class standard of rugby while having the travel experience of a lifetime all within a super affordable package.

Gal Time

We appreciate that rugby is a massive part of your life but that it’s the social side of things that really makes you love the game.

We also appreciate that work, family and all other parts of your life mean that opportunities to just hang out with your team mates sometimes come few and far between.

The Fijian Touch Cup is the perfect opportunity to rekindle the sisterhood, make heaps of memories on and off the pitch and ultimately have the time of your life in the world’s best sporting island, Fiji.

Why You Should Referee at the Fijian Touch Cup


The Fijian Touch Cup is an incredible opportunity for you to referee some of the best touch rugby talent in the Pacific. Let’s take a look at why you should referee at the Fijian Touch Cup;

Up Your Game
Our tournament is organised and managed in conjunction with the Federation of International Touch, Touch NZ and the Touch Federation of Fiji. This is an incredible opportunity to get yourself on the radar of the sport’s governing bodies. Of course, we will send you away with glowing reference and invite you back next year should you wish to do it all again!

The Fijian Touch Cup players are fast, fit and incredibly skilled. Although they play within the law they know the game and know how to stretch and manipulate the rules to work in their favour. These are no ordinary players, many of the Fijian players in particular are on a player development pathway that will see them perform on the international stage in the not too distant future.

Refereeing at the Fijian Touch Cup will challenge you mentally and physically. Do you think you have the fitness to keep up with some of the Pacific’s fastest players? Can you maintain a level playing field within a fast paced game? Do you want to up your refereeing game in paradise?

Be a Part of Player Development

Like we said, many of the players who attend the Fijian Touch Cup are on player development pathways that will see them hit the international stage very, very soon. This makes the Fijian Touch Cup an exceptional opportunity for players but also an exceptional opportunity for referees and match officials too. Not only do you get the opportunity to up your game and challenge yourself but contribute to the development of players set to change the game big time.

It will be your job to ensure that these players get the most out of their game so they can learn, grow and adapt to the challenges they will face on the international stage. Touch rugby is no longer a simple training game for the age groups is a competitive sport in its own right and we need the best referees around to ensure that the Fijian Touch Cup remains the best touch rugby competition in the Pacific.

You, as a referee, will play a key role in the success of the Fijian Touch Cup.

Discounted Package Rates

This is a great reason why you should referee at the Fijian Touch Cup. In order to encourage referees to join us in sporting paradise we are helping to cover the package fees.

Referee packages cost just $999 and include flights and accommodation. You too get a room at the Sheraton Fiji 5* resort and access to kayaking, snorkelling and stand up paddle boarding after the games have finished each day.

Referees are a crucial part of our team and so of course you too will be invited to attend our epic end of festival party and prize giving ceremony.

Fijian Touch Cup Rules


Each and every touch rugby tournament or festival runs things a little differently. We run the Fijian Touch Cup in line with the laws set out by the Federation of International Touch in conjunction with Touch NZ and the Touch Federation of Fiji.

Let’s break down the basic rules and regulations of touch rugby at the Fijian Touch Cup;

The Format

The Fijian Cup tournament structure provides each competing team a minimum of three games on each day of the preliminary match rounds.

Once the preliminary matches have concluded we will proceed with a play-off structure through to the finals to establish the winners for each of the divisions.

The divisions are as follows; mens, womens and mixed.

The Matches

Each match will be 30-minutes long played in two 15-minute halves. There will be a 3-minute half time break in each match. There will be five minutes between matches.

Transfers from the Sheraton Fiji will leave at 8am each morning and return players after the final game each day at 2pm.

Teams

In accordance with the Federation of International Touch teams are to consist of no less than 10 players and no more than 16. All team members must be registered to play in the Fijian Touch Cup by purchasing an official festival package.

There may only be 6 players from each team on the pitch during live play.

If you are low on numbers or would like to max out your team to the full 16 players reach out to us. We have a long list of local Fijian players who would love the opportunity to play alongside you and your team.

Mixed teams must have a minimum of X female players on the pitch during live play.

Uniform and Kit

All players must remove all jewellery and piercings before they play for their own safety and the safety of their teammates and opponents.

Banned items of clothing include items with buckles, zips, clips or other rigid materials. Metal hair grips and clips are also banned.

All players must wear team kit while at the playing arena in addition to wearing appropriate footwear for matches.

Match Officials and Referees

The decisions made by the referees and match officials is final. Abuse or unpleasant treatment of the referring and match officials team is not tolerated and will be dealt with accordingly.

The refereeing and match official team will give a full briefing to all teams before the competition commences to discuss any safety issues, impacts of adverse weather conditions or adaptations to the rules of play. Important issues will then be reiterated to the team captains at the toss.

Player Etiquette

Players are expected to adhere to the whistle of the referee and match officials, to play within the laws of touch rugby and treat everyone on and off the pitch with respect.

Players are reminded that although there is a strong competitive element to the Fijian Touch Cup that this is a recreational tournament and therefore the focus is on player/team development not necessarily winning and losing.

Players and teams who do not progress to the finals are encouraged to stay and watch the finals and support those teams still in the competition.

Spectator Etiquette

Spectators are encouraged to cheer and praise as much as they like. As with the players, spectators are expected to respect the decisions of the refereeing and match official team.

Spectators should never berate, condemn or bully players for their performance and are advised that any behaviour deemed to be not encouraging could result in them being asked to leave the venue.

Likewise, spectators from ‘rival’ teams are expected to treat one another with the respect and courtesy rugby fans are famed for.

Should you have any more specific questions about the rules and regulations of the Fijian Touch Cup reach out to us at team@tourismhq.com. There will be a comprehensive player and coaching team briefing before the Fijian Touch Cup tournaments commence.

Best Activities at the Fijian Touch Cup


Who said the Fijian Touch Cup was all about rugby?! With matches finishing at 2pm each day you have heaps of time to chill out in paradise! If you wanna make the most of your time in Fiji you should check out our awesome activities.

You may just want to kick back and enjoy tropical cocktails at the poolside bar, or perhaps you’ll want to get your tan on down at the beach, or perhaps you’d like to be a little more active? Many of these activities are included, and unlimited, in your package deal!

Let’s break it down;

Kayaking

Included in your package is kayaking. Whether you want a single or a double kayak it matters not! The water in Fiji is so clear that you can spot all kinds of marine life from the comfort of a kayak. If you’re heading to the Fijian Touch Cup with your teammates and need to get a little last minute arms session in this is the perfect activity for you.

Just kidding! The crystal clear calm sea is a joy to experience in a kayak and it’s an ideal way to see Fiji’s island landscape from afar.

Snorkelling

If you love marine life you’ll be delighted to hear that snorkelling is too included in your package deal. Flippers, masks and snorkels are all provided for you and you’ll be amazed by the abundance of marine life that you can see within metres of the shoreline.

Be sure to bring your GoPro with you, you’ll want to capture all the underwater action we’re sure.

Paddle Boarding

If you and your teammates are looking for an active recovery session it doesn’t better (or more fun!) than stand up paddle boarding. This is another of our complimentary activities and its perfect for all the team.

One great thing about paddle boarding in Fiji is that if you fall off you fall into the warm Pacific Ocean rather than the chilly Tasman like you would at home!

Sheraton Spa Experience
Our hosts, the Sheraton Fiji, are a 5* resort and so it seems only fitting that they have a 5* spa complex to match. We have collaborated with their team to create an incredibly relaxing and luxurious half day spa package for guests joining us for the Fijian Touch Cup.

This is an activity open for all and yes, they do offer treatments for guys too! After a big day on the pitch a visit to the Sheraton Spa is the perfect way to soothe those aching muscles!

Cloud 9

We’ve already told you that your Fijian Touch Cup experience will be the time of your life but we can literally take you and your team to Cloud 9!

Cloud 9 is Fiji’s only multi-storey floating party venue, complete with classic Italian wood-fired pizzeria and cutting edge sound system. Cloud 9 host an awesome team of DJs who bring the party to the next level.

If you and your team are looking to blow off some steam after a day on the field you’ll be blown away by the Cloud 9 experience.

Half Day Island Tour

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT PLACES THEY VISIT!

Big Bula Waterpark

For all you big kids out there you’ve gotta book your spot at the Big Bula Waterpark. A total novelty, yes, but after busting a gut out on the pitch the Big Bula Waterpark is the perfect place to unwind and mess around.

Some may argue there is such a thing as too much fun but we don’t believe them! If you wanna experience the world’s largest inflatable water park you better book you and your team’s spot ASAP.

With countless crazy water slides, climbing walls and water trampolines you’ll laugh your sock off at Big Bula Waterpark!

If all that sounds like a lot to cram into three days in addition to a world class touch rugby competition, you’re right! If you want more time to relax and play in paradise remember that we can deduct $600 from your package deal so you can extend your stay in Fiji by arranging flights that suit you!

A word to the wise; activities like the spa experience, Cloud 9 and Big Bula fill up pretty quick so if you and your teammates don’t wanna miss out you better get booking ASAP!

Why Touch Rugby is the Ultimate Island Sport / 5 Reasons Why Rugby is the Ultimate Island Sport


Rugby really is a special sport; touch rugby in particular is an incredibly accessible sport that not only improves players health and fitness but plays a key role in their social lives and development of interpersonal skills.

Without being too geeking and sports sciencey about it touch rugby has made a massive impact on the young communities of the Pacific islands and will continue to considerably contribute to their well-being in the years to come.

Touch rugby is without a shadow of a doubt the ultimate island sport and we’re gonna explore the reasons why. Let’s break it down;

Mixed Teams

What we love about touch rugby is that it is an all-inclusive game. Guys and girls, young and old, can join in with a game of touch rugby and enjoy a little light competition.

In the island villages it’s not uncommon to see youngsters having a game of touch before the sun goes down and they get called back home for dinner.

Unlike many other sports guys and girls can play touch rugby on a completely level playing field. The Pacific islands have a strong focus on community and the touch rugby community is one of the most open and welcoming sporting groups around.

Short Games

The islands are hot, always hot! Touch rugby is the ultimate island sport as games are only 30-40 minutes long. Short, sharp and highly skilled, touch rugby is made to be played in the hot, humid island nations.

Fun and Informal

Unlike the full contact game of rugby touch rugby is a more laid back, informal and fun version of the sport. The fun, laid back nature of the game mirrors the fun and laid back vibe of island life.

Although in full training and competition mode we all take our touch very seriously, outside of tournament time touch rugby is a great way to share skills, laugh, smile and get fit together.

Little to No Kit

Although at the Fijian Touch Cup we bring out the big guns and do everything by the book you actually need very little to play touch rugby. Literally just a ball (or ball like object..coconut?!) and jumpers for try lines.

If you’re playing on the beach you can draw the touch lines in the sand with a bit of driftwood and you’re away.

In terms of kit to wear on the islands you really can just come as you are. No need to fork out for the latest Nikes or Adidas boots, barefoot in the sand will do!

Get Beach Fit

Sports scientists reckon that in just 40-minutes of touch rugby the average player burns 700-calories! That’s the equivalent of one hour of jump rope! We know what we’d rather do!

Touch rugby is the ultimate island sport for making your beach buff and beautiful!

Our Ethos


If you want to get to know who we are, why we do what we do and why you should join us for the Fijian Touch Cup you’ve come to the right place.

Who are we?

We are TourismHQ. We are a New Zealand registered travel company who specialise in delivering fully immersive travel experiences with a team who have over 50 years experience in the industry.

Tourism HQ founded New Zealand’s first Fiji festival getaway with ‘BlueSky FIJI’ in 2012. We are also the team who created Spring Break Experience now available in Fiji, Rarotonga, Samoa and Vanuatu.

We specialise in creating once in a lifetime travel experiences and international festivals. We are passionate about delivering our clients the best value for money, and ultimately, the time of their lives. We stop at nothing to deliver the perfect event.

Why Are We So Great?

With our wealth of knowledge, specialised skills and extensive network of industry alliances, we create experiences that exceed your expectations and blow our competition out of the water.

We take a great deal of time in researching the market so we can create packages that are designed with our guests wants and needs front and centre.

Our Reasoning

We looked at the recent boom in touch rugby festivals across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific and we identified a number of issues that we were not happy about. Rather than sitting back and throwing shade over the recreation sports tours industry we decided to take matters into our own hands, to up our game and to offer you the ultimate touch rugby festival.

We came to realise that players and forking out upwards of $1,000 for entry fees alone. On top of this they then had to fund international or across country travel, accommodation and food. We thought this was not only too much money but also too much hard work for the players.

We removed the organisation mayhem and created a package deal that includes return flights, 5* accommodation, transfers, daily breakfast, water sports AND tournament entry fees. We’ll even connect you with kick-ass Fijian players if your team numbers are running low!

Our Ethos

The TourismHQ team then came to another realisation, that the Fijian Touch Cup has the ability to be a platform for identifying and developing local Fijian rugby players. This is where our story gets interesting and our ethos is explained.

We believe that the Fijian Touch Cup is a community event at heart and as such we put the needs of the young Fijian rugby community at the centre of everything we do. In the run up to the Fijian Touch Cup we fly out a team of coaches and match officials to run skills clinics for local teams.

We invite local teams to compete at the Fijian Touch Cup for free so they have an opportunity to experience a high class tournament but also so you, our guest, can play against some of the best undiscovered sporting talent in the Pacific.

In the not so distant future we intend to create Academy Fiji, a unique community where Fiji’s most promising sporting talents have access to world class education, life skills training and professional sport development within a safe and motivational environment. By choosing to join us for the Fijian Touch Cup you are helping pave the way for young sporting talent in Fiji to reach the world stage. Thank you.

In a brief phrase, or rather, in a tweet our ethos is to ‘host an event where players receive high class touch rugby competition, enjoy the wonders of the Fiji & give back to the athletes of tomorrow’

The Fijian Touch Cup is unlike any other touch rugby tournament in this part of the world. We’re all about community and player development. We’re here for a good time, not for a long time. We can guarantee that your four days at the Fijian Touch Cup will be the time of your life. You and your teammates will wanna come back year after year and we can’t wait to make memories with you!

See you at the airport! Remember your passport, your boots and your smile!

What to Pack – Guys / 7 Things Not To Forget


Do you have your pre-match rituals? Do you have to have your kit back all neatly packed and ready the night before? Or do you just chuck everything in a rucky and jump on the team bus?

Regardless of your packing style we’ve realised that the guys sometimes need a little extra help on the organising side of things.

Here are the seven things you have to pack for the Fijian Touch Cup!

Boots

Duhh! Well, maybe not so duhh! We’ll let you into a secret, we’ve had players rock up to the Fijian Touch Cup without boots! Although you can buy boots in Nadi and there’s bound to be some old boy who’ll run home and get his tattered pair out of the shed for you, you really should just bring ya own!

Most players play in their 3G boots but if there is a big bout of rain in the run up to the tournament we’ll email all participants to tell you whether or not you need your hard studs.

Compression Tights

They really do work! We know full well that compression tights or leggings are a rugby stash staple but after the Fijian Touch Cup games are over you’ll be transferred back to the Sheraton Fiji, this is the perfect time to whip on the compression tights to help you recover before you get distracted by the kayaking, the paddle boarding or perhaps more realistically the poolside bar!

Sunglasses

’Tis sunny in Fiji! Although you can’t wear sunnies while playing they are essential for when you become a spectator.

Also, if you wanna check out the competition on the sly you’re gonna need a pair of sunglasses to make you look totally inconspicuous!

Protein Shakes & Electrolytes

It is super hot in Fiji, hotter than most players are used to training and playing in; dehydration happens quicker than you think.

We highly recommend you bring along an electrolyte drink mix to skull after your games and a protein shake will help you recover that bit quicker too.

Water is provided down on the pitches but we, again, highly recommend you and your team bringing your own water bottles and nominate a water boy/girl.

Deodorant

One of the little things that is easy to forget to put in the toiletries bag! You’re staying at the 5* Sheraton Fiji, we’ve promised them no smelly, muddy rugby players traipsing through the foyer; you gotta keep your part of the bargain boys!

Swimmers

You’re in Fiji! Of course you’ll wanna swim. Pool recovery is one of the most effective methods of post-exercise recovery and you have the choice of the balmy Pacific Ocean or the expansive resort pool!

Smart Clothes

As much as we all love bumming around in rugby kit 24/7 you may want to chuck one semi-smart outfit in your bag for the welcoming cocktail party and the final night awards ceremony and party.

This is by no means a black tie event but it’s nice to look nice…right? Rugby players have somehow managed to make a name for themselves as always being smart and suave…don’t let the side down!

Finally, don’t forget your passport! If you forget all the above we may just be able to help you out but if you don’t have your passport you ain’t going anywhere buddy! Go find it…now!

What to Pack – Girls


There are only two kinds of girls in this world, the ones who are super organised and strategic in their packing and those would literally never give it a second thought.

Regardless of what kind of packer you are we thought we’d give you a heads up about the 7 things the girls tend to forget (or rather be reminded) to pack when heading out the the Fijian Touch Cup, let’s break it down;

Boots
Yeah, sounds obvious doesn’t it. Perhaps too obvious as we’ve had a couple of people turn up to the Fijian Touch Cup without their boots. Seems too obvious to forget doesn’t it?

Double check before you head to the airport that you’ve got your 3G boots and your trainers. Most players find wearing their 3G boots comfy enough in Fiji. If there is a big downfall of rain in the run up to the tournament we’ll email to let you know you need to bring your studs.

Hair Ties

This one defo applies for the guys as well to be fair. Remember that you’re not allow to wear metal hair grips during the games so bring some extra hair bands or a Buff to tame your mane!

Bikini
Whether you’re taking a dip in the pool for a post-match recovery session or heading out on the free kayaks and paddleboards. You’ll definitely want to make the most of the free snorkelling too.

Perhaps you’re not a water baby and just want to chill by the poolside or catch a tan on the beach. Either way you’ll need to pack your swimmers!

Compression Tights

The ultimate form of rugby stash. Right? Although it’s super hot in Fiji you cool down really quickly once you stop playing. Cooling down too fast can lead to cramp or niggley injury that could take you out of the tournament.

Doing a proper cool down after your final match and whipping on the compression tights is a sure fire way to avoid injury and DOMS!

Electrolytes & Protein Shakes
Another way to avoid injury, and illness in fact, is to bring along an electrolyte mix and a protein shake powder too.

Electrolytes will help hydrate you after the games and help you retain water, dehydration happens slowly and can lead to heat exhaustion and heat stroke…not cool.

Protein shakes help your muscles to recover quicker and give you a little energy boost after you’ve given your all on the pitch,

Dress Up Clothes

Rugby girls do like to dress up really! You and your teammates are invited to our welcome evening cocktail party and our end of festival awards evening and party. Although neither of these are black tie formal it’s great to see everyone hit the dance floor in their finery.

We’re staying at the 5* Sheraton Fiji resort so why not embrace the high life for a couple of days!

Water Bottle & Snacks

Down at the playing grounds we have plenty of water available for players but in a bid to help the environment and reduce plastic we encourage you to bring a reusable water bottle with you. That way you can help keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.

There is SO many food options at the Sheraton Fiji but if you know you need a snack boost between games or at half time we suggest you stock up at home and bring some bits with you to keep you going between meals and between games.

Last but not least, don’t forget your passport! Of all things don’t forget your passport! Is your passport in date? Go check now…go!
