It is with deepest regret we have to cancel our women's 7s tournament for this year.
We had a number of womens teams enquire and numbers were looking promising however we have only had 2 clubs confirming they are competing.
We will be refunding those teams their entry fee.
We will be working closely with the women's teams and hopefully next year we can get more interest and grow the Durham County 7s into a great annual tournament.
Promoter Mike Brown added 'Women's rugby is continuing to grow across the County and we envisaged a high turn out but this unfortunately hasn't been the case. To be able to work out the format we have had to make a difficult decision. I will be working closely with the County and the clubs to secure entries for next seasons tournament.'
Apologies to the teams who did confirm however the decision was taken out of our hands and was not made lightly.
