The TRU is excited to announce the TOLA & RRRC 7s Tournaments for the summer.
Dallas dominated in the men’s TOLA and RRRC tournaments last year, while Grand Prairie and the SHARCs had their own victories in the women’s TOLA and RRRC 7s tournaments, respectively.
It will be interesting to see if Dallas can maintain their winning streak in the men’s tournaments or if another team will step up to challenge them. And for the women’s tournaments, it will be exciting to see if Grand Prairie and the SHARCs can defend their titles or if another team will emerge as the new champion.
The summer rugby season is about to kick off with our TOLA 7s Tournaments, and the teams are ready to rumble! Here’s where they’ll be heading:
First up, the Lone Star 7s in Dallas, TX on June 10. This tournament is sure to be a wild ride, with teams from across the state coming together to battle it out on the field.
Next, they’ll head to Round Rock, TX for Bloodfest 7s on June 17. With blood, sweat, and tears on the line, teams will be pushing themselves to the limit to come out on top.
After a break on June 24, they’ll be back at it again with the Hell or Highwater 7s in Houston, TX on July 1. Teams will need to bring their A-game to this one, as the competition is sure to be fierce.
On July 15, the action moves to Woodlands, TX for Cherrybone 7s. This tournament is a chance for teams to show off their skills and go for the glory.
Then it’s off to Durant, OK for the Choctaw 7s on July 22. Teams will need to be on top of their game to navigate this tough course and come out victorious.
The season will wrap up with the final championship event on July 29 in Shreveport, LA, with the Riverboat 7s. It’s been a long, hard road, but only one team will emerge as the TOLA champion.
The RRRC 7s tournaments promise to be an exciting spectacle, showcasing some of the best rugby talent across various locations. With a range of events and a high level of competition, teams and fans alike can look forward to an action-packed summer season.
On June 17, the Bloodfest 7s tournament will take place in Round Rock, TX for the RRRC teams. That evening, Premier Rugby Sevens (PR 7s) will have their Eastern Conference kickoff in Austin, TX at Q2 Stadium. Teams can also attend the Midwest Qualifier Crossover event if they’d like.
On June 24, there are no RRRC events scheduled, but PR 7s will have their Western Conference Kickoff in Minneapolis, MN.
After a week off, the Hell or Highwater 7s tournament in Houston, TX on July 1 is the focus.
Then teams can go to the second Midwest Qualifier Crossover on July 8 if they would like and the Western Conference Finals for PR 7s is on July 15 in San Jose, CA.
Then on July 22, the Choctaw 7s tournament will be held in Durant, OK for the RRRC teams, and the Eastern Conference Finals for PR 7s is in Piitsburgh, PA.
On August 6, the PR 7s Championship will be Washington D.C. and they will crown their champion.
The RRRC 7s season will wrap up with the USA Rugby Club 7s National Championship on August 12-13.
To promote greater participation and competition in the Red River and TOLA tournaments, the modified Hong Kong Style format will be implemented once again this year. During the TOLA/RRRC qualifiers, RRRC and TOLA teams will be combined for the pool play, and teams will have to declare a week before the tournament whether they are competing for TOLA or RRRC points. It’s important to note that if a club enters two teams in the 2nd or 3rd RRRC qualifiers, with one TOLA team and one RRRC team, the TOLA and RRRC rosters are locked and players cannot switch between competitions or teams within the same tournament.
