USA Sevens Rugby Tournament

 Rugby Union Sevens - a short form of the sport of rugby union - was first played in 1883, with the first internationals taking place in 1973. As women's rugby union developed in the 1960s and 1970s the format became very popular as it allowed games, and entire leagues, to be developed in countries even when player numbers were small, and it remains the main form the women's game is played in most parts of the world.

However, although the first Women's international rugby union 15-a-side test match took place in 1982, it was not until 1997 before the first Women's International Rugby Union Sevens tournaments were played, when the Hong Kong Sevens included a women's tournament for the first time. Over the next decade the number of tournaments grew, with almost every region developing regular championship. This reached its zenith with the first Women's Sevens World Cup in 2009, shortly followed by the announcement that women's rugby sevens will be included in the Olympics from 2016.

On October 4, 2012, the IRB announced the launch of the IRB Women's Sevens World Series, the women's counterpart to the IRB Sevens World Series for men. The inaugural 2012–13 season will feature four events, with the USA Women's Sevens taking place at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston as the second event in February 2013.
