Vic Girls VIVA 7s 
Foxtel VIVA7s promotes inclusion and fair play; so if you're a junior, lapsed player, or new-comer, you can play the game without needing a certain skill-set. Foxtel VIVA7s is also an active lifestyle opportunity to stay fit. 

IT'S FIT, FUN, FAST You'll play two short, sharp matches in the one session. Every match is 16 minutes long. Foxtel VIVA7 is big on social and light on competitiveness.

FOR ALL AGES Foxtel VIVA7 promotes inclusion and fair play; so if you're a junior, lapsed player, a new-comer, male or female, you can play the game without needing a certain skill-set. Foxtel VIVA7 is also an active lifestyle opportunity for the whole family to play in the same team.

THERE'S ACTION OFF AND ON THE FIELD Fresh, funky vibes pumping around the grounds, will get you grooving and stepping on and off the pitch. Once your game is finished, there are a number of social opportunities to partake in to mix it up with your mates or family.

NO BUMPS OR BRUISES, IT'S SAFE! Foxtel VIVA7 is a tackle-less game. We prefer free-movement, creativity and evasiveness over getting tackled to the ground. Modified rules to the game allow for various ages to play and have fun together in the same team.
