The 2019 France Women's Sevens will be the final tournament within the 2018–19 World Rugby Women's Sevens Series and the fourth edition of the France Women's Sevens. For the first time in the tournament's history, it will be held over the weekend of 15–16 June 2019 at Parc des Sports Aguiléra in Biarritz[1]. With New Zealand already qualified for the 2020 Summer Olympics, and the United States only needing to field a team to become eligible, the remaining two slots shall be determined over the weekend based upon overall series ranking.

Format[edit]

The teams are drawn into three pools of four teams each. Each team plays every other team in their pool once. The top two teams from each pool advance to the Cup brackets while the top 2 third place teams also compete in the Cup/Plate. The other teams from each group play-off for the Challenge Trophy.

Teams[edit]

Eleven core teams are participating in the tournament along with one invited team, Scotland:
