More women's sevens tournaments

The rising popularity of Sevens is producing ever more new tournaments, and the latest group to set-up a sevens series are promising that there will be a women's event at all their tournaments. are launching themselves with an event at Bristol on 1st May and are also planning another tournament in Leeds.

Three years ago there was only one women's club sevens - the RFUW tournament - but this spring and summer there will be at least five! This is clearly a great time for the women's game - there is no reason at all to stop playing after you are 18.

Its also interesting that it is the commercial world that is providing all these new playing opportunities for women's clubs. Clearly they have seen an expanding game even if others (like the BBC, below) have not!
