Greystones Rugby 7s Festival is taking place on Saturday July 6th 2013 at Greystones RFC – think Rugby 7s meets Body & Soul Festival!
This coming July sees the first ever Greystones Rugby 7s Festival, bringing you a full day of exhilarating rugby, music, food and drink promotions on the superb grounds of Greystones RFC. We are welcoming teams from nationwide & overseas to sign up for this tournament to play against some of our finest Irish 7s players, and for onlookers to soak up this unique, boutique festival style sporting event.
Former Ireland &Leinster legend, Reggie Corrigan, is heading this event for us, and David Keane, the world’s most capped sevens referee, will be refereeing matches on July 6th.
We want to give Leinster a rugby sevens festival to be proud of. Our unique approach to this event is a military-run tournament of 7s teams, men & women, so thoroughly organised, the teams will be signing up for 2014 from the moment they set foot on our grounds on July 6th. While it will be regimented in that sense, players and festival goers will be surrounded by a fun, boutique festival atmosphere; excellent food stalls, a family entertainment area for kids, physio and yoga tents, and insanely funky music you can get up and shake your tush to from our confirmed act, Mr Whippy Soundsystem. Mr Whippy, an incredibly talented DJ travelling from Mayo in his 1972 ice-cream van to whip up his chilled out collection of vinyl record tunes at our event.
