International Rugby Returns to Houston!

This historical two-day International Series, the second stop on a new Women’s World Series Rugby Sevens global tour, the first of its kind for women, and an Olympic qualifier series, will take place annually in Houston through 2015. Rugby Sevens will debut as one of the new Olympic sports at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
