There are a maximum of 7 players on the field in each team. Teams have 7 ‘touches’ to score a try. There’s two 7 minute halves and, at typical VIVA 7s Centre’s, teams play up to two matches each session.
There’s action on and off the field – Fresh, funky vibes pumping around the grounds, will get you grooving and stepping on and off the pitch. Once your game is finished, there are a number of social opportunities to partake in to mix it up with your mates or family.
