WITH the London Tag Rugby community still waiting for summer to kick in, this hasn’t dampened the spirit of the players with record numbers playing Tag Rugby this year across London & Reading!
There are currently 142 teams playing in Try Tag Rugby Early Summer competitions. This figure is a 51 team increase on the same period last year!
The following competitions are looking for a few individual registrations to bolster squad numbers, so it’s still not too late to get amongst the action; Acton mixed (Mon), Highbury ladies (Tues), West Ham mixed, White City mixed (both Wed) & Southfields mixed (Thurs).
Try Tag Rugby heavily promote the social side of the sport in which regular social events are run to encourage players to socialise with other players and make a bunch of new mates and have a good time! On Saturday, a group of 40 Tag Rugby players attended the IRB London Sevens which started at 10.30am and finished late into the night. Plenty of fun was had and many new friendships made.
The next one day events coming up on the calendar are on next Friday & Saturday (25 & 26 May) which are the Try Tag Rugby Corporate Challenge and the Rugby Rocks Richmond festival.
The inaugural Corporate Challenge will see teams such as Yahoo!, Goodman Masson, Ingenious, PCubed, Phibbers & Tullett Prebon battle it out for the title! This event will take place at Regent’s Park and registrations close 16 May.
Rugby Rocks Richmond is a mass-participation sports and music festival which launched in 2010 at The Athletic Ground and Old Deer Park in Richmond. In 2011, Rugby Rocks attracted over 140 sports teams with over 2,000 participants in Rugby 10s, Rugby 7s, Netball & Touch Rugby. This year Tag Rugby will be a part of Rugby Rocks for the very first time! There will be a men’s and a mixed Tag Rugby tournament taking place at the event.
