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!
