The Carlsberg of sevens tournaments!

Probably the best girls club sevens in the world...

Well, why not? Over the years our county's Girls Sevens has grown from a little tag tournament put together by Amanda Bate at Hemel just six years ago to the become not only the most prestigious junior sevens (outside the National Sevens) - attracting top teams from across the South and Midlands - but also the most relaxed, the most fun, the best organised, and the most innovative. It is really is something that the county should be hugely proud of.

In keeping with the tradition Tring, have published the draw details early with the promise of full fixture details within the next week or so - as well as planning the biggest ever social occasion. The full draw can be found on the Herts Blog, but the edited "highlights" as far as Letchworth are concerned are...


Group 1
London Irish
Aylestone St James
Oxfordshire A
Letchworth Saracens
Old Albanians

Group 4
Rochford 100
Letchworth Saracens
Aylestone St James A
Thomas Becket School
Old Northampton

So some familiar faces. I am sure the "older" girls will relish renewing their acquaintance with Thomas Becket School, as well as "Jimmies" and Rochford (otherwise known as "Basford" until this season), while the U15s will recognise Oxfordshire from the league, and some will recall Oakmedians from last season's Gloucester 10s.

The tournament also features every Herts club (including Royston, who make a welcome debut) plus top names like Worcester, Newquay, and Paviors as well as representatives from half a dozen other counties.

The fun starts at 10.00am on 16th May.
