See the suits scrum up this weekend as the family-friendly rugby event previously known as the Profession Sevens hits the refresh button with a new home and a new name.
Now in its 30th year, the re-christened Savills Corporate Sevens
will see 16 teams from Hong Kong’s top companies get mucky and mean in the name of charity. The tournament will take place at the So Kon Po Recreational Ground for the very first time on Sunday, December 1st, with the aim of raising HK$1,000,000 for Pitch Perfect. The scheme would see three derelict tennis courts at Po Leung Kuk turned into multi-purpose sports grounds for local children.
The free event, which was first founded in1984 as a way of introducing social rugby to Hong Kong’s business community, has grown over the last three decades into a fun family day out. As well as big-hitting matches from 9am-7pm, there will be the Corporate Sevens Village area with food and drink and a Fun for All kids’ zone for the nippers.
Savills deputy managing director Nick Bradstreet said, “We are delighted that our 30th anniversary tournament has been received so well in the corporate world. Proof yet again that Hong Kong is a caring and fun loving community willing to get behind a good cause.”
