2019 was a record breaking sell out year, with 170 teams and over 6000 people joining us on tour at the Rhinos Challenge.On the back of this success, 2020 is set to be bigger and better than ever before! Due to the huge demand, we will be taking over Butlin’s on two separate weekends to stage the Rhinos Challenge, on 15-18 May and 4-7 Sept 2020! This exciting expansion will allow up to 350 teams and 12,000 people to join us at the 2020 Rhinos Challenge – the ultimate weekend of Rugby League and Fun!
U6-U14 teams and U12 & U14 Girls teams from all over the UK will make the annual pilgrimage to Butlin's award winning resort in Skegness once again in 2019 for the Rhinos Challenge. The weekend is packed with Rugby League action, both on and off the field, fantastic touring activities at Butlin’s, and a spectacular celebrity presentation ceremony to close the festival.
The festival itself is staged at Wainfleet Road Sports Ground, Skegness Academy & Grammar School in Skegness and Butlin's Sports Field. All venues are less than 3 miles from Butlin's. Please note that festival venues are subject to change.
All teams are accommodated at Butlin’s resort in Skegness for the duration of the festival. It’s the perfect base for an action packed tour.
