The Elite Insurance Sevens Series is a unique tournament that gives young rugby players the opportunity to hone their skills at one of the Olympic Games' newest sports.
Catching the imagination of schools and clubs across the East of England
Since its inception in 2013 the Elite Insurance Sevens Series has grown rapidly, from four regional tournaments and a dozen schools in its first year to six regional tournaments and over 80 schools in 2015.
Regional tournaments are held in Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, with the winners and runners-up from each competition heading to Franklin's Gardens, home of Premiership champions Northampton Saints, for Finals Day.
For some of the schools the Elite Insurance Sevens Series is their first ever experience of the shortened version of the sport, and Northampton Saints' community team offers free coaching sessions in the build-up to each regional tournament, thereby helping to create a legacy that will continue after the Series has been completed each season.
In 2016 the Sevens Series is expanding into new age groups and genders, with both an Under-18 tournament for boys teams and an Under-15 tournament for girls teams helping to entrench this legacy and create a foundation for the growth of Rugby Sevens across the East of England.
