The Victoria Garden Barbarians team is comprised of players that mostly work for small companies who cannot field a team, but have all exclusively been resident of Victoria Garden (VG), a small development constructed in 1988 and affording resplendent views of the Pokfulam Riviera and local graveyard. More affectionately known as “the Commune”, VG possesses a close-knit community, unique to Hong Kong, with stoicism in the face of intolerable odds very much the VG Baa-baas's ethos that carried us unexpectedly to be crowned 2018 Mixed Tag Rugby Champions. Of note, VG Club Chairman, Mike Davies, a proud resident of VG and athlete of mercurial and well-hidden talent, has a unique bond to this tournament, as it was created some 35 years ago by his father, David Davies.
In 2019, the VG team has been generously sponsored by OKAY.com, Hong Kong’s most trusted real estate agency. Many of the VG players have benefited significantly from OKAY.com’s unique insight into local residential markets as they continue to match-make buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants with consummate professionalism.
As a team and in partnership with OKAY.com, we are genuinely thrilled to come together to support the HKRU Deaf Rugby Programme, in defence of our winner’s trophy!
