This complex is considered the best beach and sports resort in Europe as the Algarve presents the idyllic venue for a memorable sevens tournament. Our aim is to establish that within three (3) years that the Algarve Sevens will be the best and most entertaining rugby sevens international tournament in Europe. In June 2018 many international rugby players will descend into the Algarve, famous for its fabulous beaches, glorious sunshine and night entertainment, for two (2) full days of sevens rugby. There will be both men’s and women’s competitions of different levels on show. Off the pitch there will also be several side events making sure the Algarve Sevens experience is as intensive off the pitch as on the pitch!

Introducing

The Algarve

The alluring coast of the Algarve receives much exposure for its breathtaking cliffs, golden beaches, scalloped bays and sandy islands. However 'sun and sand' is far from the only things that the Algarve has to offer. There are no end of shortages of other attractions and activities to participate in including visiting castles (both sand and real), fishing, SCUBA diving, go-karting, Jeep Safari, wine tasting, evening entertainment, beach bars (and discos)…

If you wish to explore a little more of the Algarve during your ALGARVE SEVENS weekend, we have a long list of group activities and excursions for you to pick from. At the time of enquiry/booking your team participation please make sure to request our:
