Over and Out.

Updated: Aug 5

So the inaugural Norwich 7s Fest has been and gone. Two years in the making, (thanks to the pandemic) and you all made it a fantastic party! We had revellers both Friday and Saturday, celebrating in droves and each one was a total delight to see.

Tournament day saw some fantastic Rugby Sevens played across six pitches by forty-five teams who converged on Beeston Hyrne from all across the country. With many teams providing serious competition, it looked from the off a difficult one to tell but Samurai Academy ran out deserved winners of the Men's Open Cup and Hammerheads 7s beat Championship side Thurrock T-Birds to take the Women's Open Cup.

In the Bowls, Shelford Men ran a great campaign and left with the silverware and the locals Wymondham Wasps fought off some brilliant competition to claim their trophy.

The Men's Social taken in style by Ric Flair's very own Nature Boys (Of Old Regatian RFC) who accepted their chalice with an appropriate chorus of "Woooo"...

At it's foundation, the Norwich 7s Festival was supported by the broadest of shoulders, given a leg up without which we could not have become what we now are. The Brain Trust at N7s gives a monumental Thank You to all of our Sponsors and Partners for everything done.

We first like to thank our principal Sponsor; Scott Timber Buildings. Two absolute heroes, Tristan and PJ Scott who provide exemplary support to Norwich RFC and leapt at the chance to help us build the event of the season. Tristan, PJ and their team at Scott Timber Buildings are known for the highest quality in bespoke outdoor buildings and simultaneously the highest quality in Brilliant Chaps. Thank you gents and all at Scott Timber Buildings.

A huge thanks to all our sponsors, including Dardan Security who sponsored our Women's Open Cup, Samurai Sportswear, not just our exclusive Kit supplier but also the sponsor of our Men's Open Bowl, Heritage Wills who sponsored the Women's Bowl and Lanpro Services who sponsored our Nelson's Men's Social Chalice. A special mention of course Outlook Publishing, our Tournament Match Ball Sponsors - Smart size 5's flying everywhere round the grounds thanks to our illustrious Club Captain Ben Weaver.
