Why Rex Club Red Kites
The Red Kites formed in 2014 with the vision to produce an invitational sevens side that provides a platform for players, regardless of their age or background, to showcase their talents at the most prestigious tournaments. We are one of the few teams who ask our players to pay their way after sponsorship has been contributed which has certainly caused raised eyebrows around the circuit. We are extremely proud of where we have come from and excited about the direction the team is going!
After competing in tournaments across the UK and Europe we are famed for our branding, striking kits and professional manor. Whilst being a competitive invitational sevens squad we have created a culture where we encourage our players, sponsors and supporters to socialise together whilst getting the job done. Over the years we've created a balanced environment within the squad where serious winning rugby is played along with some great nights out. The teams primary goal of showcasing the best young talent for professional teams was also achieved this year when one of our players was selected to play for Leicester Tigers at the Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens. 2018 will be a standout year for the team as we will be adding a ladies and men's academy team to play alongside our elite men's side.
