To celebrate the upcoming England Rugby World Cup 2015, Sheffield Oaks RUFC are hosting a Summer Rugby Tournament on Sunday 19th July as part of the Festival of Rugby.

There will be two tournaments:

  • Rugby 7s (full contact)
  • Mixed Touch (subject to interest)

Both tournaments are a fantastic opportunity for some fun with colleagues and friends, and a great introduction to rugby in a World Cup year.

The 7s is a full contact, faster version of the union game and open to men’s sides.

The touch is open to anyone over age of 17, both men and women, and we welcome mixed teams!

Both sides will field 7 players, but we recommend bringing teams of 10 to give your teammates a breather.

Don’t worry if you’ve not played 7s or touch rugby before, we’ll be on hand to offer coaching support and substitutions.

The winners take home a trophy in each tournament, and afterwards we’ll be running a raffle in the bar for the chance to win a selection of prizes, including a voucher for Beeches of Walkley and their fantastic meat pack.

The tournament will take place at our home ground, the Niagara Centre in Hillsborough (S6 1LU). There is ample parking and the bar will be open all day.

Entry is £10 per team, you can download the form here.

If you have any questions please contact our Club Captain, Aled Vaughan
