HistoryEdit

The first tournament was staged on 14 April 2012. This was the same day as the prestigious Melrose Sevens tournament that was won by Saracens.[2] The intention of the Hawick Linden Sevens tournament was to give teams not invited to the Melrose Sevens a chance to play in a Sevens tournament.[1]

As league matches need to be re-scheduled this has occasionally affected the staging of the Sevens tournament over the past years.[3]

Life Members CupEdit

The winner of the Hawick Sevens receives the Life Members Cup. The Player of the Tournament receives the Moira Black Trophy.[4]

SponsorshipEdit

The Sevens tournament of 2019 was sponsored by Wilson Signs and Hunters the Bakers.[4]
