International Sevens Teams to visit Vancouver Community Centres

March 05, 2018

Vancouver, BC – March 5, 2018 – In a week when the Rugby world descends on Vancouver, BC Rugby is delighted to announce three opportunities to meet National Sevens Teams in your local area for free.  Teams from England, Australia and Uruguay will be visiting community centres in the Vancouver area this week and everyone is invited.

These visits are a fantastic opportunity for rugby fans and new converts alike.  Each session will introduce the team to the audience, followed by lively skills and drills sessions run by the players themselves.  There will also be opportunities for Q&A sessions from the audience and autograph signings by the elite athletes.

With the sessions free to attend and designed to cater to all audiences, they are a fantastic way for local communities to get closer to the stars of the World Rugby Sevens Series in the lead up to the HSBC Canada Sevens, taking place this weekend at BC Place.
