The Chris Kays Memorial Rugby Tournament, also known as the Pattaya Tens, is due to take place from June 5-6 2021 at the Pattana Sports Resort.
On May 30, 2021, the organisers confirmed the tournament had been cancelled with a potential new date being explored: “Due to the rising of COVID-19 cases, we have cancelled our Revival Rugby. We are now looking at new dates and will announce soon with new ones. If your team wishes to join this tournament, please get in touch with us.”
It is expected that the two-day tens rugby social tournament will see the group games take place on Saturday followed by the Men’s Knockouts & Finals on Sunday, pending how many teams enter. Traditionally there has not been a women’s competition at this tournament in Thailand.
