Fourteen teams to contest 2018 women’s Cambridge Sevens

posted in: Cambridge Sevens, Events, News, Women

Fourteen teams will contest this year’s women’s Cambridge Sevens tournament at John Kerkhof Park on Sunday.

The draw has been made with teams seeded on past tournament performance and last season’s level of play (if affiliated club team).

We’ve tried to accommodate those who have travelled the furthest with the later kick-offs.

Vigour Physiotherapy, from Cambridge, will be on hand throughout the tournament to help any injured players.

This year’s prizemoney will see the winners take home $400, the runners-up $200, the third-placed team $125 and fourth-placed team $75.

All teams are guaranteed of at least three matches.

Group positions will be determined with teams earning 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw. If teams are level on points, their group position will be initially decided by goal difference. If that is also tied, goals scored will decide. If teams are still level, a penalty shootout will determine group position.

Any defaults result in a 3-0 win to the other team.
