Christie Sevens Background

First played in 1962, the Christie Sevens, which was incorporated on to the Kenyan National Sevens Circuit in 1999 is the oldest running club sevens tournament in Kenya, outliving the now dormant RAF Sevens (first played 1937 – 1992), the Nakuru Sevens (1949-74), Jones Cup (1952-53 before morphing into the Enterprise Cup West Kenya qualifier ) and Gestetner Sevens (circa 1976-1987).

It is named in honour of Alex ‘Sandy’ Milne Christie, a President of Kenya Harlequins’, veteran rugby player, referee for Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, Kampala, Uganda, Mombasa in Kenya who also served as President of the RFUEA and Vice-President of Wasps RFC in England.

While information on the 1962 and 1963 remains scanty, a group of rugby aficionados have painstakingly cobbled together the list of winners from 1964 to date.
