Stirling Tournament

COVID-19 UPDATE, 17/04/20

Sadly we have to cancel the event on 13th June 2020; message from club as follows:

Dear all,

Thank you all for your interest in what was set to be one of the biggest and most successful Stirling STS tournaments ever.

The STA board met earlier on in the week with the topic of upcoming tournaments on the table. Unfortunately, due to the open-ended and unpredictable nature of the pandemic we are all experiencing, the STA and club have taken the decision to cancel the Stirling STS.

On a more positive note, this is see you later and not goodbye for the Stirling Open. We’ll continue to work with venues, the STA and clubs to find a suitable date when this is all over. The Edinburgh Open remains on at the end of June so we can hope for resolution by this point!

If you’ve already paid your deposit for the tournament we will work to return this to you very shortly. Stay safe, stay fit and we’ll see you all again soon.

Stirling Storm Committee

 

The Stirling Storm Open Tournament is the best attended and largest mixed open event in the Scottish Touch calendar, the last six years hosting 20 teams, with a waiting list. We’re sure that with levels of interest already shown that 2020 will be equally as successful.

We are proud to be offer top level competition, yet retain at heart the aims of providing a tournament for all levels of team which can be competitive and at the same time very social. Definitely something for everyone!

Set at the foot of the historic Wallace Monument, the Stirling Open is a fantastic tournament, run every year since 2007, for teams of all levels from all over the UK and beyond. We look forward to welcoming you on 13th June.

Summer Ceilidh

We host our annual summer ceilidh in the rugby club marquee when the tournament is over.  The ceilidh is a great evening with fantastic live music, a hearty plate of stovies, and what we hope is a top night of dancing and partying with your team mates and friends from the day’s competition.  Plus, don’t forget Shark Attack!!!

Tickets are available for £10

We’re delighted to offer free on site camping to all participants. This is available on Friday and Saturday night, and is usually where the party continues after Saturday night ceilidh!
