CLAYTON, NC – The CottonTown 7s is back and registration for the tournament has officially opened. The tournament, entering it’s 4th year of operation, has become one of the most well attended tournaments in the region with almost 30 teams participating each of the last two years. The day long event, hosted at East Clayton Community Park, has teams participating in four separate divisions in 2019. The event offers men’s, women’s, high school boys, and now a high school girls division. Last year’s event saw well over 500 people on hand for the tournament.
This year’s CottonTown 7s is scheduled for Saturday July 13th, 2019.
“We’re pleased to get the ball rolling on another great CottonTown 7s,” said Clayton RFC President Ted Hardy. “This tournament has exceeded our expectations on all fronts. Which has made it hard on us to continue to try to improve. We had some excellent feedback after last year’s event that gave us some ideas to improve some areas. We also look forward to introducing the high school girls division. That is a group that is in need of more opportunities as participation at that level increases.”
Teams interested in registering for the 4th Annual CottonTown 7s can register by following this link. Tournament registrations are on a first come, first served basis. Each team is guaranteed at least four games and there are multiple trophies awarded in each division. Tournament fees increase on June 1st.
The tournament will also have food concessions, rugby merchandise, tournament merchandise, hourly trivia with prizes, and other activities throughout the day.
“We’re looking forward to another great event,” added Hardy. “Each year the tournament gets a little bigger, so the pressure is on us to keep delivering. All the work is worth it though when we see all of the players, teams, and fans enjoying the event.”
