Home to rulers, conquerors, revolutionaries, and modern-day innovators, Sussex has seen many great pioneers and disruptors pass through its historic lands.
In this great tradition, we bring you the Sussex 7s Series – an annual competition where teams from across the county compete in a multi-event league, accumulating points each round, to be crowned the best rugby 7s team at the Grand Final.
The premier pathway for local talent to be identified by International 7s Teams and Unions – this is the place to discover the next global superstar, a stone’s throw away from their home club.
16 rugby 7s teams (8 male and 8 female) battle it out during several legs of intense competition – as music, entertainment, and wonderful food, combine to create great family-friendly outdoor events.
Each host venue will welcome rugby fans and newcomers to the sport, sharing their club’s history and uniqueness – providing fun, a friendly atmosphere, and memorable experiences for the competition and its guests.
Who will win the inaugural Sussex 7s Series and emerge as heroes in 2024?

The 7s scene in the UK has grown exponentially, with new teams and competitions added to the calendar each summer season.
Many of these events are one-offs, expensive for players to play in, and do not provide equal opportunities for women.
This series is the first of its kind, a ring-fenced rugby competition for county eligible players, providing consistency, an elite selection pathway, and a sustainable model for each host club.
Teams can pre-register their interest today, and the series is open to discussing how clubs across the county can host or be a part of this exciting initiative.
