Melrose Sevens is an annual rugby sevens event held by Melrose Rugby Club, in Melrose, Scotland. It is the oldest rugby sevens competition dating from 1883, when the tournament was suggested by former Melrose player Ned Haig.

Held every April, the tournament is part of the Kings of the Sevens competition, and has attracted teams from as far afield as Japan, Hong Kong, Uruguay and South Africa. As of the 2016 tournament, Edinburgh are the current champions.

Domestically, the tournament is broadcast live by BBC Scotland and BBC Red Button, and locally, from the first tie right through to the final, on Radio Borders.
