The 4th annual Nations Cup took place last weekend (June 26-28, 2015) in Sacile, Italy. This years tournament was sanctioned by the IWRF for Classification and featured six teams hailing from Austria, Czech Republic, France and Italy.

 

Since its inception the Nations Cup has focused on promoting the development and growth of the sport in Italy and Europe. Not only for players, but also for those who want to be involved as officials. Last years tournament included a successful referees clinic, and this year several people attended an IWRF certified classifiers clinic.

"And by offering these clinics we not only strengthen our own program, but hope to contribute to the needs of Europe as well".
