Bournemouth 7s Festival (B7s), founded in 2008, is a sport and music festival held annually in Bournemouth on the South Coast of England. Drawing a crowd of over 30,000 attendees each year, the festival has rightly been celebrated as the "Sporting Glastonbury". Featuring a mixture of elite and social tournaments, B7s brings together over 400 teams who compete across a range of sports, including rugby, netball, hockey, 3x3 basketball, cheerleading, and fitness games. Attendees immerse themselves in the festivals vibrant atmosphere as it showcases 12 themed arenas, all of which offer a different genre of music. Previous editions have witness performances by renowned artists such as Ella Eyre, Professor Green, Example, and most recently, Katy B.
The award-winning festival first contacted Net World Sports when looking to purchase Netball Post Protectors for their 2022 event. After discussions progressed, it became apparent that Net World Sports could provide comprehensive support for B7s equipment requirements, leading to what would be a fruitful partnership for the 2023 event.
B7s required and used a host of equipment from Net World Sports, including Rugby Post Protectors, Rugby Balls, Windbreaks, Garden Games, and Pub Games. As part of the partnership, Net World Sports were also given naming rights to the Hockey tournament where our hockey balls were used.
Net World Sports were also able to customise some of the equipment, ensuring to match the colours to their brand pantone, and working collaboratively on the design process until B7s were happy.
"We were happy with all of the equipment that was sent and think the design and quality was amazing!... Many of the team commented on how fantastic the quality was... We would love the opportunity to work together again ahead of next year, especially with the addition of two new sports.”

The resounding success of the festival has paved the way for an ongoing partnership, with preparations for the 2024 event already underway. As we look ahead, Net World Sports is delighted to continue working closely with the dedicated B7s team, committed to supporting another awe-inspiring event that will captivate and thrill attendees.
