From 6 to 8 April, the HSBC Sevens Village will continue to provide free HSBC Try Rugby coaching clinics to the public, offering opportunites for kids from aged 5 to 12 to experience rugby. There will be live screenings of the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens, sport challenges and HSBC Try Rugby coaching clinics at the HSBC Try Rugby Zone, as well as face painting and meeting with Wai Bei, the Hong Kong rugby team mascot. There is something for everyone to enjoy during the Sevens weekend and chances to win some fantastic prizes.

There will also be appearances from HSBC Sevens global ambassadors and tournament regulars, Ben Ryan, Brian O’Driscoll, George Gregan and Michael Cheika who will be spending time in the HSBC Sevens Village over the weekend giving fans the opportunity to catch a glimpse or even meet with their idols
