November 27th at Burnage Rugby Club

With less than a week to go the finer details of the Movember Cup are here!

 

We have six men’s and two women’s teams attending our fifth annual Movember Cup, coming from clubs up and down the country. The men’s competition will involve a single league table with each team playing two other teams, making it six games in total during the ‘group stage.’ Games will consist of two 15 minute halves with a five-minute half-time. After the group stage, teams will be competing for their Movember Cup ranking. First will play second, third and fourth, then fifth and sixth. Alongside the main tournament and the women’s game we will be awarding the ‘best mo’ and ‘be better mo’ awards and ‘Best on Ground’ for both the men’s and women’s tournaments.

Women’s Exhibition

 

Throughout the day there will be a bar and BBQ open to all, with profits going towards the Movember charity, as well as a raffle. We would still love some volunteers to help out on the BBQ and raffle, so if you are interested in helping out please let us know via our Facebook page.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about the Movember charity. Movember is “the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale.” (uk.movember.com). The charity focuses mainly on prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

 

“Suicide is the biggest cause of death in men under the age of 35…Every hour 35 men lose their lives due to prostate cancer…Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men under 40.”

 

Movember helps fund over 1,200 projects across the globe to help give men the facts about their health, change their health behaviour for the better (with regular checking of their testicles, prostate and mental health) and develop accessible health services for men.
