Barbados is a coral island with excellent beaches. On the west coast of Barbados,
coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue/green sea. Coral reefs
fringe the shoreline to provide excellent snorkelling and scuba diving. Along the
east coast lively surf is blown briskly by the strong trade winds and the waves pound
against a rocky shore. The constant breeze of the trade winds gives Barbados a mild

The Barbados RFU has four Senior clubs. Emperors RFC, Renegades RFC, Scorpions RFC
and Trident RFC participate in interclub games. We also have a Ladies squad and a
Vets side. Our youth sides range from U16 to U19. The BRFU compete in the Caribbean
Championships at Senior men, women and U19 15 a-side and Sevens.

shores year after year, is the people and players. Barbadians,called Bajans, are
