I can't miss this! How do I get in?
General admission is £5per person. There will be some tickets available on the gate or you can book them online now!
As much as we would love to host everyone, tickets are limited so make sure you book soon to avoid missing out!
How much does it cost to enter a team?
Team entry is £180 per team, across the board. This admits a team to participate in their stated tournament and compete for the relevant cash prizes and silverware. In effect, the cost covers the admittance of no more than 15 people - meaning a "team" may consist of 12 players and three support or management staff if competing in an Open. If competing in the Social, these additional three can be permitted as players in accordance with the laws for squad numbers, or more advisably, beer caddies and surplus medical staff on hand to apply the magic sponge.
How many players are allowed per team?
If your team is competing in an Open, you are allowed a squad of 12 players, plus a support/management staff of three. These 15 are covered in the standard entry fee.
If your team is competing in the Social, you may bring a squad of 15, all of which can play if desired. The only stipulation is teams must only use 12 players per game, so there will be no more than 5 subs available per match. The surplus three can bring on the oranges at half time and play next match.
Is your event suitable for all ages?
Norwich 7s Fest is for anyone and everyone.

There will be live music, multiple bars, four pitches of rugby being played, kids entertainment and exceptional food & drink traders throughout the whole day.
What is your refund policy?
We are more than happy to offer a refund up to 28 days before the event. Just drop us a line over email or Instagram messaging and we will sort it. We normally respond straight away but if we dilly dally, we will of course honour the refund date the request was sent, rather than when we read it!
