We launched the Leeds Jungle Sevens back in 2019 alongside a number of Rugby Sevens Projects around the UK. Since we started we have taken it up a level each year, navigating Covid-19 to come back and put on the best and biggest Sevens event in the North. We are firmly committed to growing the game and showcasing the new Sevens talent on offer. Whilst the sport is our main focus, it's not Sevens without a party and we're passionate about creating a festival atmosphere that goes hand in hand with Sevens.

The festival was first created in Uni halls by Dan and his mates. In 2019 we scraped together whatever money we could get from our student loans to throw the first ever Jungle Sevens. We've come a long way from there, our growing team is responsible for building our tournament to one of the fastest growing in the UK. Our ambition is to create an event and company at the heart of the Sevens community in the UK. Drop us a line, we love hearing your thoughts! Otherwise watch this space and see you in June!
