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)
