Women’s 7s is one of the World’s fastest-growing team sports, increasing from 200,000 to 1.7m participants in the last 3 years, including a 33% increase in Australia in 2016. The extraordinary growth of Sevens has led to its inclusion in the Commonwealth Games (including Gold Coast 2018) and the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.  Unlike traditional rugby, Rugby 7s involves 7 players on each team playing 7 minute halves. The sport is a fast paced and entertaining game with an average of 70 seconds between tries.More info: http://www.utas.edu.au/rugby7s
