The “Tournoi des 6 Stations” (Six Resorts Tournament) is a rugby 7s tournament played on snow, organized in the French Alps by Yann DELAIGUE (former international French Rugby player) for its 5th edition.
Former international and non-professional rugby players will participate in the tournament that will take place across six ski resorts of Savoie and Haute Savoie.
The beauty of a tournament unlike any other:
Yann DELAIGUE, former international Rugby player (20 caps, 3 French Championships titles, one European Championship title) and already organizer of several Beach Rugby Tournaments, reiterates and creates with his partner, Stéphane Rouault, a new form of rugby, the "Snow Rugby".
He had the idea for the “Tournoi des 6 Stations” during ski holidays. An oval ball, friends and snow ... the concept was born. Beyond the sport, Yann Delaigue realized first and foremost that rugby and mountain shared the same values: solidarity, team spirit, friendliness, respect and sharing.
Rather than just a match, he had the idea to organize a proper tournament, inspired by the mythical 6 Nations Tournament, with teams composed of amateurs and former international players.
It’s also a way to promote rugby differently ... after the beach rugby, it’s time for the snow rugby!
