Not a Rugby fan? Here are five other sports events to check out this month including Laver Cup
When it comes to the Rugby World Cup, whether it be the action itself or the cultural debates that emerge from it (e.g., what Scotland’s national anthem should be) there is never a lack of buzz. That said, many people are not interested in rugby even if they do enjoy sports in general.
With these particular fans in mind, we’ve compiled this list of alternative sporting events to look out for this month that may be of interest. Our first recommendation, the famous Kiltwalk in Edinburgh, may not qualify as a ‘sport’ in particular.
However, walking events in general may do, according to Britannica: “Walking as a competitive sport dates from the latter half of the 19th century, although stories of individual walking feats were recorded much earlier.” (It’s a mass participation event but that doesn’t stop you and your friends making a competition of your own from it!)
Without further ado, here are five sports events to look out for in September.
Edinburgh Kiltwalk (September 17)
The Kiltwalk Events Page explains: “Kiltwalk is Scotland’s largest mass participation walking event with over 120,000 people taking part since 2016.”
UCI Mountain Bike World Series Festival Haute-Savoie 2023 (September 7 - 17)
A gathering that brings the mountain bike industry together in one space, this year’s festival will take place in Les Gets, Châtel and Morzine-Avoriaz.
World Surf League Rip Curl WSL Finals 2023 (September 8 -16)
Tennis: Laver Cup (September 22 - 24)
The men’s tennis team event will unfold in Vancouver, Canada. ATP Tour explains that “the Laver Cup pits six of the top players from Europe against six of their counterparts from the rest of the world.”
Golf: 2023 Ryder Cup (September 29 - October 1)
This year Team Europe will compete against Team USA at the Marco Simon Golf and Country Club situated in Rome, Italy.
