The Rugby Shop, an online provider of rugby kit and other rugby resources, will sponsor the Center of Gravity Sevens this summer. They will be the only rugby-related sponsor at the Center of Gravity event being held in Kelowna on July 28 and 29.
The Center of Gravity Sevens will be the first stop on the BC Rugby Summer Sevens Series, being offered in late July and August of this year. Three sevens tournaments will be featured at Center of Gravity - Elite Men, Open Women and Open Men. Each tournament has a maximum of 8 teams competing at the City Park venue.
"We have an excellent partner in The Rugby Shop," said Peter Rochfort, COG Sevens tournament coordinator. "Their contributions will support provision of first aid and physio services to the athletes at the two-day event. They will also provide the game balls and a few tents for use at the pitch."
"We are very pleased to sponsor these three rugby tournaments at the Center of Gravity," said Ed Pye, spokesperson for The Rugby Shop. "Many of these teams will feature the athletes who we serve at The Rugby Shop. We look forward to working with COG and the rugby community to help grow the game in Canada."
Teams can register at the Center of Gravity website.
