Hottest 7s

2021 H7s Womens Final

The Hottest 7s (formerly known as the Territory 7s) is Australia's premier 7s tournament - pure and simple.

Celebrating its 34th year in 2023, the Hottest 7s first kicked off in 1989 under the name of 'Territory 7s', attracting a modest but vocal crowd comprising local and interstate teams.

From there, the event evolved and exploded in popularity, attracting men's teams from across Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa and Asia Pacific. Since introducing a women's division in 2007, both our attendance and talent has gone from strength to strength.

The Hottest Sevens in the World will be held on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of October 2023. 


The competition has the following divisions:

  • Open Men’s (18 years old and above)
  • Open Women's (18 years old and above)
  • Youth Boys (born 2005 and 2006)
  • Youth Girls (born 2005 and 2006)
  • Under 16s Boys (born 2007 and 2008)

  • Under 14s Girls (born 2009 and 2010)
  • Under 12s Mixed (born 2011 and 2012)
