Rugbyklubben Speed RC once again invites Sevens teams from all over Europe to a weekend full of competitive rugby in a friendly and festive atmosphere.
Scandinavian Sevens is played in three tournaments; Men, Women and Old Boys. Great prizes are awarded to the winners.
The tournament has been hosted in Copenhagen for more than three decades. After the first sevens in 1982, the tournament moved around Scandinavia, but eventually ended up at Speed in 1987. Since then it has been an annual event with many recurring guests, but also new teams showing up each year. The 2017 tournament was won by Nanok 7s for men and by Jesters for women. Both finals were spectacular contests and were decided by close margins.
We look forward to weekend full of rugby for all levels, ages, genders and ambitions, where everyone in Speed will do their best to make it enjoyable for our guests!
After an intense weekend things are almost back to normal at Speed.
We congratulate all winners of the tournaments, and hope to see all teams back next year.
The list of winners of the tournaments are:
Men's Cup: Nanok Sevens (DEN)
Women's Cup: Jesters Women (ENG)
Old boys' Cup: Malmö Old Boys (SWE)
Men's Plate: Södertälje RK (SWE)

Next week the Danish teams will play for the 2017 Cup titles at Hundested. The Challenge final is between Erritsø and CSR. The cup final will be between Hundested and Speed.
The sevens was completed by two close cup finals between the best teams in the tournaments. In both cases last year's winners could not retain the title.
The women's cup final between Susie's Saloon and Jesters Women was won by the Jesters after a late try in the second half gave them a 24-17 lead.
For the men it was even closer. The Ramblin Jesters led by half time, but the Nanok Sevens reached a 14-14 draw, so the match went into extra time, in which the Nanok's got the deciding try.
