In a season of firsts for the club, this summer see’s Overton seniors trying something that we haven’t tried in a while, perhaps even ever….
Yes! The club is looking to take part in Chineham RFC’s annual Rugby 7’s festival!
While a number of players have enjoyed this form of the beautiful game, as a club it is something we haven’t really investigated, however several of the Senior team will be looking to lead the way, take the bull by the horns and bring home some silverware!
It’s looking like it will be a great day with a number of teams that we face in the regular season entering teams.
This event is open to any player and an individual entrance fee of £10 on the day will be required. If you are interested in pulling on the OV jersey and playing in this event then places are available. Either drop us a line through the website or facebook page and we will put you in touch with the necessary people.
Of course, if the thought of the fitness levels needed to play this crazy form of rugby scares you, then spectators are also welcome! entrance to the grounds are free and refreshments will be available!
Chineham RFC have been running this festival for a number of years now with all the proceeds from this great event going towards Cancer Research UK. More details about this great event are available on the Chineham RFC 7’s Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/chineham7s/
So come along to this great event and support the boys!
