They currently have around 360 registered players. The governing body is BVI Rugby Football Union, which is affiliated to the IRB and NAWIRA. The British first introduced the game to the islands, and for a number of years it was mainly played by expatriates. Now it has some uptake żeby the local population. Games against visiting ships, and touring sides are common, as well as against neighbouring Caribbean islands. The British Virgin Islands compete in the Caribbean Championship, a tournament which includes Trinidad and Tobago, Bermuda, Martinique, the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Antigua and Guyana.
