Hong Kong has been at the forefront of sevens rugby for well over 40 years and developed quickly into the ‘must play’ event and the ’must visit’ event for sevens players and supporters alike. Hong Kong is as busy, vibrant and mystical as you would expect and whether it’s your first visit or your tenth, the sights, smells and atmosphere over the sevens weekend will always captivate and excite you.
The Venatour team will be headed up by Gareth 'Cooch' Chilcott and his team of experienced tour managers. Cooch is a true veteran of the Hong Kong 7s, clearly as a supporter rather than a player! He will be hosting Cooch’s Tavern with some of his rugby pals, and will be available throughout the tour for beers, chats and to guide you through the delights of the city.
