What is the "All Players Tournament" ?

The All Players Tournament is a new kind of touch tournament... the kind of tournament where every team has the same chance of winning...where all teams are equal.

Its simple! Just register (see below) and you’ll be placed in a team depending on your level of experience. Each team will contain:
- 2 womens and 2 mens of international level (only 1 of each will be allowed on the pitch at any one time)
- 2 womens and 2 mens of intermediate level
- 2 womens and 2 mens beginners

Once the teams are chosen its then all about getting to know your new team mates, playing touch and most importantly having fun!

This is a fantastic opportunity for beginners to learn from more experienced players and a challenge for those with more experience to lead and bring together a brand new team.

The cost per player is £10, which will also give you access to Murrayfield Stadium for the Sevens Games (contact us if you have already purchased your ticket).

Venue and times

The tournament is expected to finish early to mid afternoon to leave enough time to go and support the Scotland Sevens squad in Murrayfield Stadium for the start of the final phases. As soon as the schedule will be known to us, organisers will set the finishing time for tournament and inform all registered players. Start time is expected around 10:00 am.

Players are requested to gather around the admin point 30 minutes before the competition starts so that they can find their team and warm up in a group.
