7 reasons to visit World’s Largest Sport & Music Festival!

The World’s Largest Sport and Music Festival is back this late May bank holiday, 24th – 26th May 2019, in the beautiful South of England, Bournemouth. Renowned as the sporting Glastonbury, Bournemouth 7s has established a formidable reputation over 12 years among sports people and festival goers alike.

With its buzzing atmosphere, Bournemouth 7s attracts over 30,000 festival goers and 400 sports teams each year from all over the world to the picturesque Dorset country side.

By day, Rugby, Netball, Hockey, Dodgeball and Volleyball teams compete in a range of elite and social sports tournaments across the 65-acre Festival sites.

By night, the Festival offers 15 vibrant themed Festival arenas including the much-loved “Bunker” and 40 live bands and DJs with sing along parties, R’n’B, dance, techno, garage, Hip Hop and house music.

Bournemouth 7s is getting bigger and better each year. This year it has added Volleyball to its offering and responded to the rising popularity of Dodgeball across the world by increasing the opportunity for non-sporty people to play, compete and have fun in this brilliant non-contact sport. 

This year, Bournemouth 7s opens the doors to an amazing crazy VIP arena – ‘The Colourseum’. If you are looking to ride a rodeo bull, participate in sock & suit wrestling, play giant beer pong, or have a relaxing massage after enjoying a drink in the garden, ‘The VIP Colourseum’ is your arena. Or, treat yourself and upgrade to ‘The V-VIP’ and mingle with the celebrities.

Glamping is Bournemouth 7s most exclusive and easiest package, as all you need to remember is to rock up to the Festival with your essentials, as everything will be awaiting your arrival, including pre-erected bell tents, the Glampers bar, beds and private luxurious bathrooms.

Bournemouth is also for your rugby mad kids. Under 14 year olds are allowed to enter the festival for free. Every minor (under-the age of 18) needs to be accompanied by someone who is over the age of 21. Children have to leave the campsite at 7pm. In terms of playing at Bournemouth 7s, children are able to enter Hockey, Dodgeball, Netball and Volleyball teams. In terms of Rugby tournaments – it depends on the player who applies for playing at Bournemouth 7s. It is judged case by case depending on the child’s experience and level, since it is a contact sport.
