Rugby Belize is a voluntary non-profit organization that aims to develop, encourage and promote the participation of men, women and children in the sport of rugby sevens throughout the country. San Pedro Town is among five destinations in Belize that have established rugby clubs (the other destinations are Belmopan City, Belize City, Hattieville, and Orange Walk Town). The local club: San Pedro Turtles, is being spearheaded by local resident Martin Dawson.16 Rugby Belize app-2
According to founder of Rugby Belize, Tony Gillings, the app is crucial to the development and recognition of the organization. “The Rugby Belize App means that anyone downloading it to their smart phone, can keep up to date with everything rugby in Belize and beyond. It gives them immediate, up-to-date news from around the globe and, perhaps more importantly, allows them immediate contact with Rugby Belize. Eventually, fixtures and results will be accessible for teams and competitions domestically, regionally and further afield. It’s instant access, instant info, instant feedback and it’s a free download. Rugby is a great sport for everyone. It is fun, builds character and team spirit, and it also encourages a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness,” said Gillings. Rugby Belize’s ultimate goal is to make its international debut at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
