The Invitation Tournament at the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens is getting bigger and better and the Netball Tournament is back for its second year which will ensure the biggest Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens to-date.

The launch of the Netball Tournament last year was a key step to ensure that the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens remains the sporting event in the UAE. This year’s Netball Tournament will see 36 teams battle it out in two categories, Gulf Women and Open Youth - a significant increase from 2015 with teams travelling from all over the Middle East to take part. 

Invitation Tournament Manager Jill Conlon said: “It’s encouraging to see such a strong interest in the sport which is coming from all over the Middle East and we are delighted that 36 teams will be taking part in this year’s tournament. The Netball Tournament not only complements the rest of the event but also provides even more sporting entertainment for everyone. We are looking forward to welcoming all players, supporters and general fans to the biggest three-day festival in the UAE.” 

The Netball Tournament will take place over three days this year with Open Youth playing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and Gulf Women playing on Friday and Saturday.
