Dates finalized for the 29th Annual Lakefront 7s rugby tournament

Lakefront 7s, July 8 & 9, 2011On July 8th & 9th, 2011, the Milwaukee Rugby Sevens Association will host the 29th annual Lakefront 7s, the third-largest seven-a-side rugby tournament in North America.

We will again partner with Milwaukee County to hold the event at Veterans’s Park on the shores of scenic Lake Michigan. The county has renewed their commitment to the Lakefront 7s by providing additional field space. This means that we will have a total of 6 fields this year!

In addition, we have tentative plans to hold a U19/High School mini-tournament (no collegiate players) on Friday, July 8 and a senior tournament on Saturday, July 9. This expanded format would be the first two-day event in the history of the Lakefront 7s and will allow us to accommodate even more teams. In 2010, approximately 12 teams were turned away and we are hoping to avoid this situation in 2011.

So save the dates for the 2011 Lakefront 7s tournament. It is shaping up to be one of the best tournaments in recent years. Registration will open on February 1, 2011.
