The Kenya Rugby Union has announced the dates for the 2017 National Sevens Series. The Driftwood Sevens gets the sevens season underway on 22nd July with the Kabeberi Sevens taking place a week later in Nairobi.
The Series will then take a one month break, a break that has been necessitated by the country’s general election in August before resuming on 2nd September with the Prinsloo Sevens in Nakuru. The fourth leg of the series takes place on 9th September with the last two legs, the Christie Sevens in Nairobi and the Dala Sevens in Kisumu taking place on the 23rd and 30th of September respectively.
