Our task in developing the game in Mauritius and the Indian Ocean enables us to bring together people with different ideas, backgrounds and cultures, thus establishing unity by giving all those involved a collective pleasure. Rugby being “une école de la vie”, allows children to become men and men to remain children.

Over 150 games are being played every year including junior games (Under 11 to Under 17), Women (Touch and 7-a-side), Senior (15-a-side and 7-a-side) and Beach Rugby.

One major avenue of local rugby development is through the Get Into Rugby (GIR) program, which is a development program under the guidelines of World Rugby. Rugby Union Mauritius has been qualified for CSR Programs since beginning 2010. RUM’s most important project is the development of rugby for young players from under privileged areas.
