The Austin Huns are proud to announce the Inaugural Lochridge Memorial XVs Tournament that will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at Huns Field in Austin, Texas. The name Lochridge Memorial XVs was chosen to honor Pat Lochridge, the late founder of Huns Rugby Football Club. As rugby players, we always ruck for those ahead of us, and Pat is that guy that earned the tough meters for the club on the field and off. We’re proud to support his legacy.
Lochridge Memorial is accepting team applications. Limited spots are available and accepted teams will receive notification no later than 9/30 to accommodate travel needs. Lochridge Memorial XVs is a destination for teams that are both competitive on and off the pitch. The "Best In Class" social trophy given out exemplifies the commitment to the sport and culture of rugby.
Austin is a community of people that care, and Lochridge Memorial is proud to partner with The SAFE Alliance - a local nonprofit offering services for victims of sexual and domestic violence. Donation opportunities will be throughout the vendor and social area. Austin is also notorious for its nightlife and Halloween draws party-goers from all over the globe providing the perfect atmosphere for some post-tournament festivities. A great tournament helping a great cause with a great party at the end of it all!
The Austin Huns have hosted regional tournaments such as the USAR Western Qualifier, RRRC Collegiate Championship, and Bloodfest 7s- one of the largest 7s tournaments in the country. With top quality facilities including 2 full size pitches, fan bleacher areas, and a vendor festival area, Lochridge Memorial XVs will be a destination tournament for any team looking for great competition and a valuable travel experience.
