July 9 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 pm BST
After a fantastic TagFest Coventry in 2021 the only Midlands tournament in the TagFest Series is looking forward to welcoming teams from all corners of the country.
Just imagine – the sun is shining, an early start, playing Try Tag Rugby all morning and into the early afternoon and then relaxing with your teammates and the rest of the TagFest players whilst taking in a Rugby League game, enjoying a cold drink and street food and then partying into the late evening with some tunes and festival vibes!
This year’s event will be hosted at the home of the Midlands Hurricanes Rugby League and will be played on the same (and adjacent) pitches, just minutes before the professional Rugby League players take to the pitch with a 5:30pm KO against North Wales Crusaders. Hosted just south of Birmingham (just 30 min drive from Coventry), at Birmingham and Solihull Bees RFC, the countryside venue is picture perfect for a Saturday full of Rugby!
With a capacity of 24 teams, TagFest Coventry & Warwickshire 2022 has ambitious growth plans, offering divisions for all standards and an after-party to be reckoned with, onsite festival vibes, street food vendors and craft beer outdoor bars. The TagFest party will remain onsite with a local DJ playing summer tunes throughout the afternoon and late into the evening.
There is ample free parking onsite and trains run hourly from Birmingham Moor Street Station to within a 1.5 mile walk from the ground.
For the first time ever TagFest Coventry& Warwickshire will also have camping available! More details below.
We look forward to sharing more details as we approach the event but fair to say, it will be a great day of Tag, great festival feel and after-party, a great location and a great weekend.
