Surfside Sevens

It was an amazing weekend on the 80th Street Fields in beautiful Stone Harbor, NJ as close to 80 teams gathered for the 11th annual Surfside Sevens rugby tournament.

East Coast Rugby Conference

The ranking and match-ups were set after Saturday's pool play at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex. The sun rose over the Atlantic Sunday on twelve teams stocked with talent and grit, each capable of beating any other on any given day. The question left to be decided was who would prove best on this day.

The date is officially set for the 10th Annual Surfside Sevens. Note the time of 7:00am. Of course, we always strive to make it bigger and better than the year before. One thing will remain the same...We'll all be scorin' at the shore like we first did in 2004.

The theme all along in 2012 has been the people. The people that make our sport great. And with 68 teams playing 110 matches with 14 trophies in 9 divisions there were more people at Surfside 2012 than ever before. The crowd estimated at over 1,500 people was treated to some great rugby and lots and lots of rugby fun.

After the tremendous Surfsides of 2004, 2005, 2006, we wouldn't have expected any different for 2007. Each year the Surfside winners receive custom Surfside Sevens rugby gear including balls, pint glasses and Tiki trophies. A special thank you goes out to Royall Lyme for their support in 2004, 2005 and 2006. We planned even more for 2007.
