The Weekend Sun Competition

Rugby sevens’ teams from the Waikato and Manawatu are aiming to defend their men’s and women’s titles at the 2018 TECT National Sevens at Tauranga Domain.

The tournament, which runs on December 15 and 16, will feature 28 teams from across the country.

Billed as a great day out for the whole family, the tournament will be complimented by a selection of the best Little Big Markets’ food trucks and entertainment and activities for the whole family in the More FM family fun zone.

Organisers say it will be a place where people can hang out and enjoy their surroundings, some great music, good food and the flair of rugby sevens.

Tournament director David Pearce says affordability was a key driver to get people along and support the 28 teams taking part.

“With the tournament to be held just over a week before Christmas, it’s a great excuse to spend the weekend at the sevens watching some fast action rugby,” says David.

“With games being 14 minutes long, and with 78 games to choose from, there will be something for everyone. It was important for us to deliver a great ticketing offer for people to enjoy this.”

TECT National Sevens tickets can be purchased from Dash Tickets, and start from $15 for adults, $10 for students and $5 for children under 15. Under-fives can attend for free, and family concessions are also available.
