Details announced for 2023 U16 Rugby 7s tournament
November 9, 2022

One of the best sporting events on the Rydal Penrhos calendar – the RPS U16 Rugby 7s – will once again take place in 2023.

Details have been officially confirmed for one of the most important dates on the Rydal Penrhos sporting calendar. It’s been an outstanding start to the academic year for the school’s pairing athletes, who’ve achieved a considerable amount during competitive fixtures and also achieved individual accolades with regional and national squad selections to further boost their credentials.

The school is delighted to announce that the Rydal Penrhos U16 Rugby 7s Tournament will be taking place on Saturday 11 March 2023 from 9am-4pm on the stunning New Field site.

The day-long competition is set to feature a large number of schools and clubs from across North Wales and the North West for what is sure to be an exceptional showcase of talent and camaraderie.

This is the fifth time Rydal Penrhos has organised the event, which is held for U16 teams before many of them embark on senior and first-team rugby in the coming months.

Teams will be put into groups and following the opening games, they will then be divided into Cup, Plate, Bowl, Trophy and Shield categories depending on their placings in each pool.

This will be followed by an exciting knockout stage that will decide the overall winners in each category.

The tournament made a welcome return to the schedule in 2022 after COVID-19 restrictions forced its cancellation in 2021. Last year’s event was well attended by teams and parents, bringing a vibrant atmosphere that had been sorely missed.

A tuck shop will be available for refreshments all day. Those in attendance will also enjoy a lunchtime barbecue complete with vegan options that can be pre-ordered.

Accommodation is also available for teams looking for an overnight stay. Please contact events@rydalpenrhos.com to register your interest.

The cost to enter is £50 per team. Anyone requiring further information or to book your place, contact Ryan Kirby via email at RKirby@rydalpenrhos.com.
