The Wisconsin 2019 Rugby 7s calendar lists the rugby events relevant to those living in and interested in rugby in Wisconsin. This includes the traditional summer tournaments as well as collegiate and high school series, rugby tens, and tag rugby. When available, the list also includes relevant contact information for each event or series.
We will continue to update the Wisconsin rugby 7s calendar as information becomes available (especially for Fall 7s events which are still a ways off). And if you have any additions or modifications to the Wisconsin rugby sevens calendar please do drop us a note! (more…)
