After a fantastic TagFest™ Coventry in 2019 the only midlands tournament in the TagFest™ Series is looking forward to welcoming teams from all corners of the country.
This year’s event will be hosted in the tranquil and beautiful surroundings of the Warwickshire Spa Town, Royal Leamington Spa.
With a capacity of 32 teams, TagFest™ Coventry & Warwickshire 2021 has ambitious growth plans, offering divisions for all standards and an after-party to be reckoned with in the onsite clubhouse. The party will then head into town to see the night out. All social elements will depend on the Covid-19 situation and will be adapted accordingly at the time.
Royal Leamington Spa is just over an hour on the train from central London, only two hours from Bristol in the South and Manchester in the North so take your team on tour and make a weekend of it.
We look forward to sharing more details as we approach the event but fair to say, it will be great tag, great after-party, great location and a great weekend.
