Preview to The Church 7s 2009
Church 7s 2008 The Pink Ba-Bas have yet to name a squad for The 3rd Annual Charity Sports Day at Grasshoppers Rugby Football Club on Saturday 9th May 2009. The Church 7s is only in its third year, yet has already attracted a number of the well known sevens ‘brands’ that tour the circuit.

This year will be the biggest event to date, with all three divisions within the rugby and netball competitions sold out. All proceeds from the day will go to The Shane Francis Ahearne Trust, which funds scholarships to Bath University for young people with promising academic or sporting ability.

The Pink Ba-Bas will be seeking to retain the title they won last year and will no doubt face strong competition from the Pirates who are on a high from winning the Sunshine 7s two weeks ago, beating the Ba-Bas 12-7 in the final.

The selectors will be hoping that many of the squad will be unscathed from playing for their respective clubs in the Middlesex Club Sevens over the recent Bank Holiday weekend.

Squad to be announced soon.
