Try out your rugby moves - and win!

Ball games are a great way to get your entire family active over the summer - and encourage physical exercise in people of all ages. As well as teaching skills such as dribbling, throwing, aiming and bouncing to your kids, ball games also depend on team work and social interaction. Regularly throwing a ball about on a pitch, a beach, a field, in the back garden or playground will help improve the motor skills, hand-to-eye co-ordination, posture and muscle and bone development of everyone that joins in. And as well as countless kiddie classes, there's plenty of opportunities for parents to take up and continue a ball sport as a regular workout too.

Next month sees the kick off of the Rugby World Cup 2015 - and there's never been a better time to pick up ball for some family fun. Allianz is celebrating its partnership with rugby union club Saracens (last year's winner of the Premiership title and a team that boasts seven England Internationals), with the #PassAroundTheWorld campaign. You can join in the fun - and win great prizes too! The question is - who will you pass to?

What's the score?

Ever fancied being part of one long global pass? Maybe passing the ball to the likes of Owen Farrell and his team mates - or even Lewis Hamilton? Well, gather up your friends and family and record your very own rugby pass. Upload it to the #PassAroundTheWorld and you'll be in the running to win anything from a £150 Ticketmaster voucher to spend on any event, anywhere in the world to exclusive Saracens prizes including tickets to see them play, signed rugby balls and an opportunity to have lunch with the team after attending a training session. 

The rules are simple: Turn your phone sideways to record, have the ball come in from the left and go out on the right (what you do in-between is up to you, handstands, laughter, passes between any combo of family, friends and pets are all good!), make sure your video is less than 10 seconds and under 30MBs, then upload it and share!

That's it - you're in the draw! Good luck!
