The committee has been considering whether and how we could run this year’s Southern Highlands 7s. We contacted our database of teams, players and coaches in Sydney, the ACT and regional NSW, and there was quite a bit of support for trying to hold an event later this year.
However circumstances are dictating otherwise, and unfortunately we’ve decided to cancel this year’s event.
Issues with social distancing and numbers of spectators permitted make the logistics difficult. But mainly we felt a responsibility to the players, coaches, managers and parents, and to our spectators, sponsors and volunteers on the day, not to put anyone in harm’s way. We also have a large juniors contingent at our event and that doubles our responsibility.
We’ll be back bigger and better in 2021 and we can’t wait to welcome our sponsors, the 70+ teams and 4000 people to the Highlands then.
