Boston Qualifies for 2016 Club 7s Nationals
Northeast Summer 7s heated up in 2016 with tremendous competition at summer tournaments! Boston Women’s competed at last year’s 2015 7s National Championship – and worked hard for a return berth to the prestigious competition. An influx of talented collegiate players and the continued dedication of our 15s leaders allowed Boston to push hard throughout the summer season and push hard during the NERFU Summer Sevens Series.
With a NERFU second seed going into the Northeast Regional 7s Playoffs at Saratoga 7s Competition in NY – Boston put all the pieces together on the pitch! With one loss to Old Blue in pool play, Boston stepped into a semi-final match up against Beantown, a team Boston had traded wins and losses with throughout the summer series. Always a tough match, Boston emerged victorious and headed to the finals against Old Blue. The rematch was amazing, with Boston playing some of the best defense of the day and Old Blue constantly pushing for possession. Old Blue was able to slip in one more try than Boston, with a nailbiting final result of 10-5 for Old Blue. Despite the loss in the finals, both teams qualified for the Northeast seeds into the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championship taking place August 13-14 out of Denver, CO.
Please help us send off our Sevens Squad to compete at nationals. Many of these players paid their way to Nationals in May and are now trying to fund their trips to Nationals 2 months later. They need YOUR help to make it possible to compete!

Boston 7s Tournament Brings the Cape to Boston!
Boston Women’s brought it’s tremendously successful summer Cape Cod 7s tournament back to Boston this year (fun fact – did you know that before there was Cape Cod 7s – the earliest years the tournament was held in the Boston Metro area 31 years ago!) Our FUN summer tournament that embraces the competitive game and mixes in a theme and costumed play took place on July 23rd in Acton MA – bringing the whimsy of the Cape to Boston! Undeterred by drought- dried fields, over 25 Men’s and Women’s teams took to the pitch and kicked off a new tradition with us churning out Boston 7s first Tournament winners, its first tournament costumes, and our first ever U19 bracket. Check out the event page for even more breakdown, including the victors and some fun photos, but many thanks to all the sponsors that helped us make our return to Boston so successful. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
Congratulations to the winners of the day – and thank you all for being a part of the summer Tournament that we love!
