Blackbeard Beach 7s

2019 Blackbeard Beach 7s Rugby Championship

Saturday August 10, 2019 Registration opens in May

The Blackbeard Beach 7s Rugby Championship is the only beach rugby tournament in the Carolinas and one of few on the entire east coast. The tournament has been in existence since 2012. The Clayton Rugby Football Club took over as the tournament host in 2018 and we look forward to carrying on this great event. 

The Blackbeard Beach 7s takes place the second weekend in August each summer in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. The tournament is a fun and social end to the summer 7s season.
