2023 NASH BASH
BIG BASH: 3/25-26/2023
Rugby. Music. Fun. More Rugby. More Music. More Fun.
Get your team together, get down to Music City, USA and see why the Nash Bash Rugby Festival is the "IT" Spring Rugby Tournament.
For 39 years now (give or take a pandemic or flood!), rugby clubs from all across North America have traveled to Nashville for this extraordinary event. Held in March each year, the Bash continues to provide youth (started in '04), college, men's and women's teams with a high quality, entertaining weekend of rugby to kick off the Spring season. Last year more than 100 teams enjoyed good running rugby, festive music and the great camaraderie that has
come to define the Nash Bash.

Want to Referee at Nash Bash?
With such a large event, we love referee exchanges! Please contact your society chair to request attendance to the event of your choice (Big Bash or U19), who will then reach out to the MidSouth Referee Society Chair to make the request through proper inter-society channels.
We offer lodging, game-day meals/drinks, Saturday ref team dinner and AGM attendance (Big Bash only),
plus game fees/travel stipend and a dryfit referee jersey.
Nash Bash provides an excellent opportunity for clubs in cooler climates to get in some warm-up games before the start of the season, and teams from warmer parts the chance to size up possible playoff competition.
There will be rugby equipment and apparel on sale as well. Also, we'll have live music and an outstanding social as well as photographers and videographers on-site to capture all the great rugby moments. Make plans to attend the Bash and find out why this is North America's Premier Rugby Festival.
MEN'S AND WOMEN'S TOURNAMENT
The women's tournament is one of the best in the country, and again offers teams a chance to play a number of clubs from distant geographic locations. We have both club and college divisions with the coveted Cowboy Boot Trophy awarded to the top finishers.
On the men's side, due to the success and enjoyment of the teams last year, we will once again host a tournament format like the ladies, with competitive and social divisions for Club and College.
U19 NASH BASH
The U19 Nash Bash provides the chance for Middle School and High School rugby teams to dust off the cobwebs and prepare for the upcoming Spring season with three games in a friendly format. We separate the U-19 Bash into three brackets: Middle School; U-19 Girls Division; and U-19 Boys Division (A & B teams).
