Tag Rugby is a 7 a side minimal contact version of Rugby. Try Tag Rugby have mixed, men's and ladies' weekday evening leagues running all across London & Reading year round. Matches last 40 minutes, and venues are conveniently located in areas close to public transport. Leagues vary in standards, ranging from those aimed at beginners to experienced players. There are also regular weekend festivals featuring massive after parties. Registration for leagues and events is open for teams, part teams and individual players.
Try Tag Rugby are the only organisation in London who run week night Tag or Touch Rugby outside of summer under floodlights. Try Tag Rugby are internationally recognised, being the official UK delegates of the International Tag Football Federation.
Tag Rugby is a minimal contact team game in which each player wears shorts with velcro patches with two tags attached to them. The mode of play is similar to Touch Rugby with attacking players attempting to dodge, evade and pass a rugby ball while defenders attempt to prevent them scoring by "tagging" - pulling a velcro attached tag from the ball carrier. Ball movement and back line play is actively encouraged in Tag Rugby, the ball is allowed to touch the ground and some kicking is allowed. Try Tag Rugby predominantly use the Oztag rules of Tag Rugby.
Try Tag Rugby are proud to announce that the 4th annual London Tag Rugby Championships will be held on 17th August at East London Rugby Club. The 2013 London Championships will be the biggest and best yet, with overseas teams confirmed, an easily accessible venue on the tube network, a bar and a BBQ on site.
