The Ovalies Unilasalle association was founded in 1994 and is celebrating its 28th anniversary this year. It has a rich history written by thousands of students coming from France and Europe to share the values of rugby and solidarity.
The city of Beauvais, through its stade Marcel Communeau , transformes into the capital of European university rugby.
From communication to logistics, including entertainment and catering, we carry out all these missions ourselves. This is what makes our association and our event unique. When it was created, the idea was clear: to organize a major rugby tournament with a charity goal.
“For the first time, students are giving up the benefits of a protest and working with an association to promote a cause. »
Today everything has evolved but nothing has changed.

Who are the patrons of this 28th edition??

As every year for 27 years now, the Ovalies association, a rugby tournament organized by the engineering students of Unilasalle, is sponsored by key figures from the world of French rugby. Several big names have had the opportunity to join this event, such as Vincent CLERC, Thierry DUSAUTOIR, Jessy TREMOULIERE, Imanol HARINORDOQUY alongside Michaël JEREMIASZ, or Sébastien CHABAL.

During its last edition, the Ovalies were accompanied by a renowned rugby player and a former international player: Dimitri YACHVILI and Fanny HORTA.
