Championship side South Coast Pirates will host the annual South Coast 5s Beach Rugby tournament from Friday July 22 to Sunday July 24, 2022 at Safari Beach hotel in Diani, Ukunda Kwale County.
Hosts South Coast Pirates will be joined by Base Titanium, Miran, Dmafisi, BATUK, Karen Crusaders and Karen Chiefs for the three-day beach action with more confirmations expected.
With the National Sevens Circuit concluding on Sunday July 17, 2022 at Kakamega 7s, rugby players will have a week to rest before descending on South Coast in Kwale County.
"This year should be a big tournament as a lot of teams have confirmed will be coming down here. Like usual it should a big weekend full of action, entertainment and beach rugby," said South Coast Pirates' Kevin Amiani.
The Championship side has repeatedly underlined its prowess in touch rugby, leaving many in awe of how they have continued to claim the tournament's top accolades. In 2016, SCP I successfully defended their 2015 crown after defeating SCP II in the cup final.
