Join Boston Women’s rugby on July 18, 2015 for the 30th Annual Cape Cod Sevens Tournament!
The 30th annual tournament will be held on July 18, 2015 at Nauset High School in Eastham, MA. To celebrate such a decade milestone, the tournament will be CO-ED for the first time in tournament history. Get ready for some rugby!
The theme for this year’s tournament will be HOLIDAYS. So break out your Santa Claus outfit to celebrate Christmas, or your best Abe Lincoln beard to celebrate President’s Day, or your lederhosen to celebrate Oktoberfest! Any way, it’s a celebration!
About our Tournament:
Every year Boston Women’s Rugby hosts the largest women’s rugby sevens tournament in the country. In 2015, the tournament was opened to men’s teams for the first time in tournament history. (We felt bad continuing to exclude them from this fantastic event). Though the gender of participants may change, the spirit of Cape Cod Sevens will remain the same. What distinguishes the Cape Cod Sevens from most of the other summer tournaments on the east coast is the mix of fierce competition (several of the country’s top-ranked women’s teams attend every year) and chaotic fun (teams are strongly encouraged to play in costume)!
Each year we carefully select a theme to which participating teams are “required” to conform. We highly encourage theme inspired creative and interesting on-field attire. Past themes have included “Battle of the Ages”, “Superheroes and Villains”, “Rock Bands”, and “High School Cliques”. Our tournament participants are as diverse as our themes. We have college teams, women’s club teams, teams of “retired” players who have decided to dust off their boots, and a few teams united by some pretty odd commonalities: they all play the same position; they all have the same name; they all have the same color hair.
For those of you unfamiliar with the area, Cape Cod is a popular New England vacation spot; Eastham is located on Cape Cod about 2 hours southeast of Boston and a half hour from Provincetown (the tip of Cape Cod and the location of some excellent bars, shops and beaches).
The tournament is a one-day event with competitive, social, college, and high school divisions. Teams of all levels are welcome to participate. Each team is guaranteed 3 matches. However, for teams who play through to the finals, the number can be far higher! Teams are encouraged to play in costume and our post-tournament social features a skit competition nearly as fierce as what we see on the pitch.
