In 2015, Lisbon will again be hosting Pitch Beach, an international Rugby and Volley tournament for LGBT sports teams. The 5th edition of this event will be held between 16 and 18th of July, helping to raise the already warm temperatures expected. The Pitch Beach tournament is organized by the Lisbon-based Boys Just Wanna Have Fun Sports Club (BJWF), which includes the local rugby gay team (Dark Horses) and also a volley team (Lisbon Crows).
Watch the games in Carcavelos Beach
Around 100 athletes are expected to participate in this year's tournament. Teams will first battle it out on the pitch but then also on the beach. Therefore, if you want to support the boys you can actually do it whilst enjoying some nice beach time. Head on to Carcavelos beach on the 18th of July and have a great day celebrating sports and equality.
