Hong Kong Corporate Sevens 2017
10 December, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 8:00 pm
The Savills Hong Kong Corporate Sevens returns on Sunday, 10 December at So Kon Po. The 2017 tournament has set its sights on raising funds for the Po Leung Kuk Tackling Life Rugby Programme. The Corporate Sevens welcomes 19 corporate teams and counting, including title sponsor Savills, gold sponsor Macquarie Group, silver sponsor KPMG, CBRE, Colliers, Jardines, Latham & Watkins, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Standard Chartered, Swire Properties, TSW Pandas supported by Richard Basmajian and Simon Reid-Kay & Associates, HK Tag Gazelles and the Deaf Rugby Team.
The programme seeks to introduce Po Leung Kuk students to rugby and use sports as a medium to encourage a healthy and positive lifestyle; sessions focus on building confidence and self-esteem alongside developing team work and interpersonal skills. Almost 4,000 students from 21 PLK school across the territory are currently involved and our goal is to increase this number to 25 PLK schools by 2019. What’s more, the use of native English speaking coaches at the Children’s Learning Centre will also encourage students from the Language Training Programme to build confidence in using English in a non-traditional learning environment.
Gates open at 9am to the sound of pipes and drums and the first game kicks off at 9.30am. The tournament promises to exceed expectations and deliver a great day of entertainment for the team players, their families and friends. The village brings together Shamrock caterers who ensure to fuel, Highland Spring to keep the players and supporters hydrated, and Emack & Bolio’s legendary ice creams to keep cool. The Kidz Zone sponsored by Microsoft is sure to be a big hit for the little and big spectators with face painters, balloon twister and various arts and crafts provided by KidHop, keeping all entertained for hours.
