On the Sportego podcast we talk Fan Engagement and Sponsorship activation with some of the most interesting and knowledgeable people in the industry. This week in what is the 5th installment of the show, Sportego CEO Trev Keane was joined by Kevin Thornton from Gymnastic Ireland and Myles Waud from London Beach Rugby.
During a great thirty minute conversation, the guys spoke Gavan Hennigan and his fantastic achievements, the growth of Gymnastics in Ireland and playing Beach Rugby in Dublin.
Gymnastics is growing at an exponential rate in Ireland, due in no small measure to Gymnastics Ireland embracing fan engagement and harnessing social media. In addition, the emergence of Gavan Hennigan as a homegrown star has been instrumental in building the sport’s profile.
Many rugby formats are well established as alternatives to the 15 player game, from tag rugby, to seven-a-side tournaments. So just where did the idea of bringing a beach rugby game to London come from, and how did Myles manage to make his idea become reality?
