It is great to be able to say things are looking positive for ND7s 2021. Government and RFU roadmaps look to be in our favour, meaning ND7s this year will be on 24th July 2021.
We have lots of new components for this year's festival, a few we can talk about, and a few which haven't been fully signed off yet. We won't be talking about them, although you may have heard a certain Rugby Podcast who don't take the game too seriously discuss us recently.
What we can talk about...
We will be raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young. C-R-Y is a charity very close to the club's heart after losing our Club Captain, Max Biles, suddenly in 2009. He was only 29.
We will have our annual raffle - lookout for prize announcements!
Men's Social - 32 team tournament. Fully Booked.
Women' Social - hopefully a 16 team tournament. Register your team here
Men's Elite - 8 team Tournament, very close to being fully booked
Vets 10s - All new to this year festival, a 6 team tournament letting the masters demonstrate their skills. Register your team here
ND 7 Youth - We are looking into the possibility of holding a boys u18 and a girls u18 tournaments on the evening of Friday 23rd. If you are interested in taking part, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Off The Field
British & Irish Lions - if the tour is to South Africa, we will be showing the 1st test live in our party tent. 7s action will pause for the second half of this epic class. Letting players and officials get a breather whilst watching the best in the world do battle. If they move the tour, we will update you all on our plans.
Theme - Lions/Animals
Food & Drink - We hope for a wide range of food stalls at this year's festival, offering a wide variety, hopefully satisfying everyone's palette. We will also be serving food well into the evening.
There will be more bars than ever before to help quench your thirst. Joining the clubhouse bar will be the main outdoor bar, with some funky beats in the evening, the shelter bar, serving Beers and ciders during the Lions and our infamous buckets in the evening.
Party Tent - Will be returning, B&I Lions during the day and full-scale party at night! Lineup to be confirmed.
I hope that has whetted your appetite for this years ND7s. Look out for further announcements on our social media channels.
