Lane Cove Summer 7s is back for 2017

Last year the summer 7’s series was a huge success.  Families really embraced the concept with Dad, Mum, and the kids all playing.  How much fun would it be playing in a team with your wife or husband?  Ignore this statement if you could think of nothing worse – as you don’t have to play in a mixed team. All the games are played on a Friday Night at Blackman Park.  The season kicks off on Friday, October 13th.  So have some fun on a Friday night with the whole family.


What is Lane Cove Summer 7’s?

Lane Cove Summer 7’s is a touch football competition for ages 7 to 99 managed and operated by the Lane Cove Junior Rugby Union Club. Last year, the same competition was known as Lane Cove Viva 7’s, however this year 2017 the Lane Cove Junior Rugby Club has decided to manage the event under the new banner ‘Lane Cove Summer 7’s’.

The season runs for 8 Weeks and finishes up on December 8th, 2017. The kids’ games run from 5.30 to 7.30pm and the adults’ games kick off at 7pm.

Every Friday sees hundreds of children, friends, and families running around in both a competitive and a just for fun format.

Games involve 2 halves of 7 minutes (approximately 15 minutes including half time) and each team plays two games every Friday. The rules are modified touch rugby rules that allow for kicking and a very free flowing game – like those you had in the backyard as a kid. You can view and read the full rules of the game by clicking here – It really is a fun format.

BBQ and Drinks Afterwards

Throughout the season there are some great activities to keep the players and fans entertained. Why not grab a massage between games? Fancy a meal? There is a fantastic BBQ with an ever-changing menu. There is even a licensed bar onsite to cool you down. A little birdie tells me there may be jumping castles from time to time.
