Excitement builds ahead of Rugby 7s tournament return
February 17, 2022

Excitement is building as Rydal Penrhos gets set to welcome Rugby 7s teams from across the region for the return of their U16 tournament.

There is an enormous amount of excitement in the air for our aspiring young athletes at Rydal Penrhos. Competitive fixtures have resumed, training is taking place under social distancing guidelines and there has been plenty to celebrate across a multitude of different sports during the academic year so far.

This encouraging period after such a difficult two years due to COVID-19 will also see one of the most prominent dates on the Rydal Penrhos sporting calendar also make a welcome return, with the annual U16 Rugby 7s Tournament taking place on Saturday 12 March 2022 from 9am-4pm on the school’s stunning New Field site.

It is a competition that always draws a significant amount of interest and this year’s event promises to be no different. Rydal Penrhos will be welcoming 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 from some immensely talented rugby hopefuls.

The tournament is open to U16 teams, who will be put into groups and compete in a round-robin format. Once this comes to a conclusion, teams 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.

Rydal Penrhos staff are constantly monitoring Welsh Government regulations and will be taking every possible precaution to ensure the safety of everyone attending this spring. A tuck shop will be available for refreshments all day and 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.

The cost to enter is £40 per team. Anyone requiring further information or to book your place, contact Ryan Kirby via email at RKirby@rydalpenrhos.com.
