This isn’t just a problem in Colorado, but across the country. Lots of previously successful tournaments with women’s divisions are dropping those games because of lack of interest from women’s teams. I’ve definitely seen it here in Wisconsin.
I’ll put partial blame on the organizers of the tournaments, but women’s teams need to step up and help keep the game alive for all of us. How do you do that? Put a team together for all of your local/state tournaments. Especially college women’s teams. Summer off from school doesn’t mean summer is off from rugby. You’re missing one of the best seasons!
Anyway, my friend KT forwarded this to me … the Sneath 7s in Denver, July 7th, lost it’s women’s bracket from lack of teams. And interested teams in the immediate area get tired of playing each other all the time. Take a trip out to Denver this summer for some good rugby … And DON’T FORGET, Memorial 10s in Madison, Wisconsin, August 11!
40th annual Sneath Cup 7s in Denver. Saturday July 7, 2007.
We would like to have your club play in the Sneath Cup 7s. As you may know we are hosting one of the three Mens WRFU 7s Super Regional Qualifiers, Mens Social & Womens Club Brackets, Youth Division. Saturday July 7, 2007.
So far Aspen, Dallas Fort Worth Elite, Kansas City Blues, Olympic Club (San Fran), Queen City, Santa Fe, The South RFU and the Barbos 2 competitive sides have expressed interest in attending.
Last year we had Dallas Elite, Kansas City United, O Club, Sante Fe, Shreveport and ourselves as well as some local clubs in the tourney. The Qualifier bracket is a small (8 to 12 teams) but competitive event, 5 weeks before the National Club 7s.
Two years ago we had a Womenâ€™s bracket. We were not able to attract a Womenâ€™s group last year but would like to again.
Pitch size â€“ 2 dedicated rugby fields with full dimensions and Goal posts
