Welcome to the 55th annual Cherry Blossom Rugby Tournament! After a successful return in 2022, we are excited to announce we are returning in 2023! The tournament will also have a new home, as the 2023 Cherry Blossom Tournament will be held at Liberty Sports Park in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. We are confident that you will enjoy the new facilities!

This year's tournament will feature a Club Men's Division (15s), Old Boys Division (15s), College Men's Division (15s and 7s), College Women's Division (15s) and a High School Boys Division (15s).

The Cherry Blossom Tournament is one of the largest rugby tournaments in the United States. The tournament has routinely had 40+ teams participate, and Washington RFC is proud to welcome some of the best high school and college teams in the country. The tournament also has a tradition of attracting teams from Canada, and has also had other international participants, including an all-Japanese High School team and a touring side from Australia. This year, we are excited to be bringing back the College Men's 7s division. We are still committed to giving those that prefer 15s an opportunity to compete in the Spring, but we also want to provide opportunities for clubs that have moved to full-time 7s.

Once again, we are working with LeagueApps to make the tournament registration and schedule available online. You can submit the Entry Form for the tournament by clicking "Register" above and signing up for the tournament as the captain of your team. If you choose to register by returning the Entry Form which was sent to you along with the tournament invite, we'll register your team online on your behalf.

We're allowing teams to submit an Entry Form online without paying since many teams still have to get a check from their school. Please keep in mind that your team is not registered for the tournament until we receive both the entry form and payment. Email confirmation from LeagueApps is simply confirmation that your online Entry Form has been submitted, and is NOT confirmation for tournament registration. Your team is not officially registered until you receive confirmation of payment and registration from Washington RFC.
