Elite Insurance Sevens Series

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.

The 2017 Series is heading to a number of new venues, including the Royal Hospital School, Stowe School and The Perse School, with the Under-13 and Under-18 boys' tournaments both happening in the spring and the Under-15 girls' tournament taking place after Easter.

To book your school's place in the tournament, request more information or organise a coaching session email Will Parkin from the Northampton Saints community team at willparkin@northamptonsaints.co.uk
