If your rugby withdrawal symptoms just refuse to abate and you can't wait for the new season to kick off in August, then fear not, because two of Ayr's 1st XV players have the solution. Turnberry Beach Rugby is the brain child of Andrew Dunlop and Stuart Fenwick, and takes place this weekend.
Men's and women's teams will compete on the sandy shores of Turnberry in a fast-paced and exciting competition that boasts free admission to daytime spectators. Play begins at midday on Saturday.
The evening before, food and drinks will be available from 7pm, with acoustic music from 8pm. On Saturday night, wristbands will be available for £5 for admission to the bar and music marquee.
