Rugby Fives National Singles Final 2013 - Tristao vs. Ellison

For the first time in 6 year we have Rugby Fives National Final without James Toop. Tristao vs. Ellison.

After an hour of seriously high quality play, Tristao walks away with the title. He outplayed Will with a spectacular range of shots. Final score 15-4 15-7.

He is the first Old Pauline to win since the great John Easy in 1969.

Rugby Fives National Singles Final 2015

This two and a half hour epic match to find the champion of the 2015 Nationals was one of the most spectacular matches in the history of the sport. The two finalists are Will Ellison and Daniel Tristao. Will won the title last year and Dan the year before. Both played consistently go hammer and tong together in the various regional finals and this was the big one.

Tremendous shots, clever play, tireless retrieval and pushing to the very limits of endurance are just some of the traits on offer for anyone who can stomach this match. Sadly the battery cut out at the business end of the third so the creatives among you can simply make the ending up.

Rugby Fives National Doubles Final 2014 (Highlights)

Some of the footage from the 2014 National Doubles final, where Will Ellison & Charlie Brooks looked to hold on to the Cyriax cup against Tristao & Grant, who wanted it back!

Sadly we could only film one court and the players moved back and forth as the courts sweated. This is everything we have - doesn't do it justice, but still great doubles action!!

The full match between defending champions and no.1 seeds Ellison & Tristao vs no.2 seeds Grant & Kay.
The first game is a non-starter but the 2nd one pushes the top 2 doubles players in the country all the way. This has nothing to do with the long final the champs played earlier that day in singles but everything to do with Kay's class and Grant's brilliance.

European Beach Fives Rugby Championship 2017

What is Eton Fives?

In a time when sport is often all about money and big business, it is good to find a game which has barely changed since its creation, nearly two centuries ago.

The rules of fives are similar to squash apart from when the ball hits the buttress. If you fail to hit the ball above the ledge around the court, you lose the point. Like squash, you can only score when you’re serving.

Players wear padded leather gloves, since the ball is quite hard. It is only played as a doubles game - two teams of two players. It’s a game of honour and with no umpire or referee, the players must confess their own foul.
Not only is it an extremely fast game, but also one of great skill.

Unlike most other sports, it is thought left-handers have a sneaky advantage owing to the design of the court. Better still, the ambidextrous players have an advantage over both, since shots can be played with either hand.
