The Rundown

NoogaRugby's 20th annual Pitch-a-Tent 7's is set for Friday, July 23rd and Saturday, July 24th 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!

As usual, there will be some rugby played, and the 2021 tournament will be open to 32 men’s teams and 32 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)

Payment Information - full refund will be issued if Covid-19 cancels the event again

Men’s Entry Fee: $400

Women’s Entry Fee: $325

Individual (whore) Fee: $20

Thursday Night Pre-Welcome Party

While the official tournament welcome party is Friday night at the tournament site, NoogaRugby is also hosting a pre-welcome party in downtown Chattanooga on Thursday night for those of you who come into town early for the rafting (see below).


The Welcome Pre-Party will start at our sponsor bar, "Mexiville Northshore" at 6:30 pm and include one (1) free keg. Once the free keg is kicked, you're on your own but the good news is that Mexiville has a wide range of drinks and some of the cheapest beer in town. Usually we start there and after a few hours we bar hop our way through the rest of downtown Chattanooga.

**Any and all Pitch-a-Tent participants are encouraged to attend**

Here are the details...

What: PAT 7's Pre-Welcome Party

When: Thursday, July 22nd from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm

Where: Mexiville Northshore - (103 Cherokee Blvd suite c, Chattanooga, TN 37405)

If you're coming in for the Pre-Party, plan on staying downtown Chattanooga or one of you staying sober...it is a bit of a drive to Cherokee Farms, especially at night.

If you're not coming in 'til Friday, just pitch your tent at Cherokee Farms anytime onwards from Thursday at noon.
