The best way to keep up to date with Olney RFC


Countdown to Olney 7s - this weekend!

This Saturday, 24th June, is a must if you enjoy a good rugby day out. The annual 7s tournament, now in its 11th year, includes both Men’s and Ladies events coupled with the celebrated off pitch social occasion.

Why not arrive early and watch the Lions 1st Test match live in the clubhouse at 8.35? It will also be repeated again later in the day.

From the first 7s games at 10.30 in the morning to the finals at 6.30 pm there will be nonstop rugby on all pitches.

Don’t plan to go home. The post 7s party with a marquee, Hog Roast and live band, GrooveStar, will continue late into the night.

Look forward to some quality 7s in the Brakspear Men’s Open. Last year’s finalists Ilkley RFC and Coventry Rugby are back again along with previous winners Sherrards Assassins. Providing further competition are a number of sides, from near and further afield, including Apache Braves and The Black Sheep.

The regulars on the touch line at Olney will recognise a number of familiar faces competing in the Stimpsons Eves Social tournament. In the Olney 7s Ladies Open look out for Harlequins Ladies who are joined by ONs, Lakenham Hewitt, Harpenden and our own Olney Ladies.

The fine weather is booked. Well after last year we thought we needed to have a word! Add in an All-Day Bar, Sisslers BBQ, Caribbean Food, Real Belgium Fries, Bouncy Castle and much more – it promises to be a great rugby day out for all the family.

Enjoy the day – entrance for all spectators and supporters is free!
