A veritable scrum of 34 matches, 24 teams and one eventful day, Vauxhall Middlesex Charity Sevens provides high-octane rugby action to oval ball fanatics and tongue-twisted number crunchers alike. An annual charity event, this year’s line-up includes top club and invitational sides such as England’s ‘Help for Heroes’ team, Wales, Brazil and current defending champions Samurai. Raising funds for noble causes since 1926, this year’s funds are going to Wooden Spoon – a children’s charity of rugby – and RFU Injured Players Foundation. Hosted by the home of English rugby, the famed 'Fortress Twickenham', this 82,000-seater giant has seen some epic clashes over the years including England's 45-24 victory over Fiji in the 1999 World Cup.
Grubber-kicking, grammar-bashing Groupon holders can stretch up and ruck down to Twickenham for a veritable feast of rugby union. Bearing witness to a host of epic seven-a-side clashes lasting twenty minutes apiece, join in with the rising sounds of anticipation as dashing runs are made up the flanks and roars rise from the stadium's belly upon the scoring of tries. Played in tournament format, back the winner as a series of exciting, hard-hitting games narrow the plucky punters down to the champion of the day.

...The 3 of us have attended most of the Premiership finals over the last few years and think, as a fun & exciting day out, this event was actually better. The action is virtually non-stop from the 10am start to the finish after 6pm.

Whilst the games varied in quality, the atmosphere grew and grew during the day. Twickenham seemed to become one big pub, with a friendly atmosphere throughout. Many were in fancy dress and this merely added to the atmosphere on the day.
