Wellington Sevens 2020

24 Oct

An action-packed weekend of football, hurling and camogie was had at Te Whiti Park, Lower Hutt on Labour weekend 2020. The tournament was certainly the envy of the GAA world as we were the only place on the planet playing Gaelic games due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So much so that the tournament even made the news back home in Ireland with this piece from the Irish Examiner.

Thanks again to the 29 teams who travelled to the capital and played their part, our sponsors and everyone who helped out behind the scenes. You can view photos of the weekend herehere and here, as well as watch tournament highlights here. Tournament winners and players of the finals can be found below.
