IN ASSOCIATION WITH

WORLD CLASS 7s WITH A GRAND GALA EXPERIENCE!

Welcome to the official website of Rugby Barbados World 7s (RBW7s) – the longest running Club Rugby 7s Tournament in the Region.

Known as the birthplace of Caribbean Rugby, it is only fitting that Barbados now plays host to this world class Rugby Tournament after it was relocated from Trinidad in 2016. With over 25 years of history already behind it, RBW7s continues to grow from strength to strength and is gaining popularity locally, regionally and internationally as a prestigious event with teams from countries like the USA, Canada, England, Wales, Scotland, and the Caribbean Islands including Barbados, all vying for the RBW7s winner’s title and cash prizes on offer.

To add to this, our Official RBW7s partners now offer a variety of special RBW7s deals during Tournament time such as discount car rentals, accommodation packages, and personalised island tours, making it easier than ever for RBW7s teams and fans to enjoy the grand gala event as well as explore all that Barbados has to offer.

NEW VENUE!

Now in its 6th year and with over 40 Regional and International teams having indicated their interest in participating in 2021, we have moved the Tournament to a new venue to accommodate our exciting expansion.  So this year, RBW 7s will take place over 3 – 4 December 2021 with a new family-friendly format and grand gala theme.

The New Venue – Bellevue Plantation & Polo Club – can accommodate two large playing fields which are perfect for Rugby 7s. It is set on over 100 acres of beautiful grounds ideal for this year’s event which will now include Women’s and Men’s Social divisions (in addition to Elite) as well as a little something for everyone such as live music, DJs, art and craft stalls, authentic Bajan food and drinks, kid’s entertainment etc.

WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

This year, several events are being planned for the week leading up to 2021 RBW 7s, which include the Barbados Independence Day Parade along with a wide variety of social and cultural activities. More details will follow shortly.

We proudly host an array of RBW7s associated events and activities that aim to bring diverse people together, raise money for local charities, give away fabulous prizes to our supporters, as well as just to socialise and have a good time! We also run various competitions in the lead up to RBW7s, with lots of fabulous prizes up for grabs.

Our annual Charity Event is another highlight on the RBW7s events calendar. In 2019, RBW7s impressively raised over $10,000 BBD for the Barbados Cancer Society at our Gavin Clark Memorial RBW7s Charity Golf Tournament!

There’s also the highly-anticipated Official RBW7s After Party during the evening of Saturday 4th December as well as the infamous Rugby Beach Beer Bash & Dip’s (Hot) Dogs for players, officials and fans to celebrate the closing of a great event on the day after the Tournament.

Stay tuned for the official 2020 RBW7s activities list or take a peek at our news stories where regular updates are posted! Teams have already started booking flights, so don’t miss out!  It’s going to be EPIC!
