East Grinstead Rugby Club hosts the Blue Cube 62nd  Sunshine Sevens on Sunday 28th April 2019

The Tournament has established itself as the longest running Charity Sevens Tournament in England, something that East Grinstead Rugby Football Club is extremely proud.

 

With the focus on raising money for Local Children's charities, the Tournament still manages to attract the top sides in the South of England to come and play and help raise money.

 

Last year we managed to raise  £15,5000 to local charities, supporting Step by Step for Autism, Special Families East Grinstead, and Wooden Spoon the Rugby Charity.

 

This year we will focus on a one day format with three Tournaments.

 

Men's Elite Tournament –“The Lady Astor of Hever Trophy”

Ladies Tournament    -     “The Steve Cairns Trophy”

Men's Social Tournament  – “ The Development Trophy”

 

 

Last year the standard in the Main Elite Mens Competition was fantastic with Ramblin Jesters managing to hang on to beat Samurai 26-17.

 

In the Blue Cube Plate competition it was Nomads who got stronger as the Tournament progressed beat Wooden Spoon Marauders 35-14.

 

Player of the Tournament, Tom Walsh playing for Samurai collected a prize of a watch sponsored by Penny-farthing Jewellers, East Grinstead.

 

Presentations were made by Lady Mayor Julie Mockford, President of EGRFC Andy Poole, and Gary Haycock-West CEO Blue Cube Security Ltd, the main sponsor.
