After the successful return of the Highland 7s in 2012, Highland will be holding the tournament at Canal Park, Inverness on Saturday 20th April 2013. The exact format of the tournament will depend on the number of teams, but we hope to attract 20-24 teams again. The event last year attracted teams from all over Scotland and a guest side made up of players from Ireland, England and Wales.
The Tournament is the biggest 7s competition in the Highlands and one of the biggest in Scotland. It attracts a mixture of club and social sides. Last years format included a Cup, Bowl and Shield competition starting at 12 noon with the final around 6.30pm. For those on the sidelines there is a beer tent as well as a fully stocked clubhouse, burger and food stalls and not to mention the famous Highland hospitality.
Highland are encouraging Teams to make a weekend of it and will be arranging an after party at one of the local nightclubs as per 2012. Teams will also be able to camp at the clubhouse, but there are also a number of hostels and other accommodation providers in Inverness itself.
