Auction

At the drinks reception held after the Tournament, we will be holding a charity auction in order to raise further funds for the Foundation.

The list of available lots will be published below prior to the event with their respective reserve and estimate price.  Bidding will start at the Reserve price and we are happy to take open bids now (until the evening), where it will be possible to place a best bid (and increase it) without being present at the auction itself.  In this way we hope to make the lots available to a wide audience, whether they are participating in the tournament or simply associated with it. 

To place a best (maximum) bid, simply email TouchRugby2015@lseg.com with: The Lot you would like to bid on, your best bid, your name, your company, your address and your mobile number.
