NEWQUAY SURF SEVENS:
RUGBY: All roads will lead to Newquay later this month when teams from all over Europe will be competing in the 2012 Newquay Surf 7s Tournament.
Tournament director Andy Hawken has announced that the tournament is full. Over the weekend of June 30 and July 1, 104 teams will be competing.
This year the Women's Open will be the biggest ever with 32 teams competing for the HSS Hire Cup and the social event being sponsored by the Newquay Arms.
Andy added: "This is by far the biggest women's sevens competition in the UK if not Europe, showcasing Women's Sevens Rugby at its very best."
The Men's Open, once again sponsored by Sailors, has attracted some of the best sevens teams in Europe. The British Army, Apache Raiders and Burrda Ronin along with the Royal Navy Sharks will all be fighting it out.
The Akuma Sports Cup, to be played on Sunday July 1, will feature 40 teams and Andy is pleased to announce the increased number of Cornish teams who have entered.
Hayle, Bude Leopards, Capio Eggs, Morgan Marauders and Kernow Kingers. Pasty tax campaigner, Kernow King, tackles Newquay after a successful first outing at this year's Penryn Sevens. Andy is happy with how the tournament is developing from year to year adding: " I never have problems attracting teams to Newquay, the facilities that we provide at Newquay Sports Centre and Newquay Tretherras School are second to none.
"I am also very grateful to our sponsors Sailors, HSS Hire, Akuma Sports and Newquay Arms and to the town of Newquay who make all our competitors feel so welcome.
"There has a great response to our 25 year reunion. Out of the 51 players who played for the first team, we have been able to locate 48 of them and over 40 have confirmed that they are attending. Fellow Old Hornets are invited to join the reunion from 2pm at Newquay Sports Centre on Saturday June 30.
As it is Armed Forces day, our charity for 2012 is Help for Heroes, please give generously to this very worthwhile charity.
Due to the extra teams we now have to kick off the Saturday games at9.30am, car parking and spectator tickets for this top sporting event are free.
