About FB7s

The Fat Blokes Sevens is organised by Abbey Rugby Football Club. We are a group of highly trained athletes with a love of rugby and surreal humour. Abbey RFC are affiliated to Berkshire RFU.

We aim to benefit other charities during the course of the event - this means organising or taking part in group activities which will be fun for those taking part and beneficial to the selected charities.

The Fat Bloke Sevens, is a unique tournament for those who'd like to play sevens but aren't of the body type or fitness usually associated with the game... this is a FUN tournament and although we structure leagues to cater for all abilities we would remind you that this is not a "serious" 7s tournament.

General Admission & Camping

Under 16s accompanying a paying adult are free. This is to be paid in CASH on the day in exchange for a wristband and entry. There are some important things to note:

When entering a team, it is essential you advise on how many tents you are expecting - this way we can allocate pitches in team blocks. If you have a large tent or a camper van, please inform us ASAP and include the team you are with.
