Graham Robinson Memorial 7s: 19 April 2014

Smashy BearsEntries are now open for teams to register for the 10th Graham Robinson Memorial 7s (GRM7s) tournament, which is to be held at Old Emanuel RFC on Easter Saturday, 19th April 2014.

The annual event is held in memory of Graham Robinson, an Old Emanuel RFC player tragically killed in a motorcycle accident, and features exciting Rugby 7s action and a friendly social atmosphere.

This year will see the event’s first ever women’s competition as GRM7s expands in line with the wider 7s game and organisers are hoping for a fiercely contested tournament to mark the milestone 10th occasion.

As well as the Open Women competition, the tournament will host 2 men’s competitions – Open Men for the more competitive teams and Social Men for those just out to enjoy the event.

The event will feature live music, authentic Caribbean BBQ, competititions and a fully licensed bar.

Spectators are welcome to attend the event held at the community rugby club at Blagdons Sports Ground at Shannon Corner, New Malden.

Local businesses are also encouraged to get in touch with organisers to find out about commercial opportunities surrounding the event.
