The Rundown

NoogaRugby's 22nd annual Pitch-a-Tent 7's is set for Friday, July 21st and Saturday, July 22nd just South of Chattanooga, TN at the world famous Cherokee Farms in Lafayette, GA.

Gates open at noon on Thursday for you early birds coming to party all weekend! DON'T FORGET WE ALSO RECOMMEND RAFTING ON FRIDAY IF YOU HAVEN'T BEFORE- Deets below

As usual, there will be some rugby played, and the 2022 tournament will be open to 40 men’s teams and 40 women’s teams. Teams will be listed as they get registered. Note: Registration is now available -- Click here or the Payment tab above.

We're all here to party!

Rugby is second best here because we all know Pitch-a-Tent didn't become famous nationwide due to the caliber of rugby being played; it has become the nation's largest (social) 7s event for its own reasons!

Decide on a theme for your team, dress up, go all out, have a blast!

Slip-n-slides, co-ed showers, 60 kegs, dance party, loud music, flashing lights... lots of drinking, little bit of rugby!

Awards will be presented for "best themed team", "furthest traveled", "that guy" and "that girl" ...and a few as well for people who actually played rugby, but back to the fun! Belly flop contest, clothing-optional egg-toss contest, etc!

Trophies and prizes for all these events and more will be awarded, oh and FREE BREAKFAST on Saturday morning (for first-time attendees)
