Melrose 7s 2017

Rotary again sponsors Melrose 7s

For the second year in a row, Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland was a sponsor of the Melrose 7s, the oldest rugby 7s competition in the world.

There were pitchside Rotary banners, and all match officials had the Rotary logo on their shirts. The Rotary marquee was a focal point to publicise our work, and with four hours live coverage on BBC2 this gave Rotary a massive publicity boost.

Melrose being in our district, a number of 1020 Rotarians from the borders and beyond helped on the day, which was deemed a great success, for both Rotary and rugby.
