The Cook Islands International 7s is held during the first week
of November each year and includes both a men's and women's
division. The tournament has grown to now feature 16 men's teams
and 8 women's teams competing over three days.
The competition is also referred to as 'Sevens In Heaven'
because of the idyllic location and the beautiful people of the
Cook Islands. However do not be mistaken - the rugby is just as
competitive, fierce and intense!
Attracting some of the top teams from NZ and high profile 7s
players to help boost local sides it is a battle of attrition under
the warm Rarotonga sun.
There is also fun off the field with novelty events at Sevens In
Heaven including costume competitions, dash for cash races, kicking
competitions and more.
The CI International 7s is fast becoming one of the most talked
about 7s events in the region. Be there!
