TagFest London 2022 was the largest single-venue Tag Rugby tournament ever held in the northern hemisphere. TagFest London 2023 is going to go further by not only being the biggest but also the best as we add more off-field activities, competitions and entertainment to complement the electric on-pitch action.
TagFest London 2023 will continue to include, engage and entertain players like no other Tag Rugby tournament. After a full day of Tag Rugby, the post tournament party will begin and continue late into the night with live music and DJ playing your favourite tunes. Put simply this is the ultimate Tag event for your calendar!
Over the coming months we’ll be announcing the off-field competitions that will take place throughout the day and into the evening at TagFest London 2023 but we can already confirm multiple bars onsite, an elite line-up of TTR’s best reviewed food partners, live music and DJ sets.
TagFest London 2023 will return to Richmond Athletic Ground, in South-West London, just a ten minute walk from Richmond tube station. We are looking forward to welcoming our widest array of tournament attendees as teams head to the tournament from across the UK, Ireland, France and beyond.
The first matches of TagFest London 2023 will kick-off at 10:30am and culminate with the Division 1 final on the main pitch, in front of the after-party area. The winners’ presentations will take place shortly after the final.
All teams will play through the pool stages to determine whether they make it into the Cup, Plate, Bowl or Shield competition for their division. The four divisions will have staggered finish times to allow easy access to the bar for a well earned drink or three after your final.
– All teams will have a guaranteed game time of 90 minutes with 16 team spaces in Division 1 and 32 spaces in each of Division 2, 3 and 4
– Maximum of 12 players per squad and a maximum of 4 male players on the pitch at any one time
– Division 1 will play 8-a-side with full international rules. 2023 7-a-side Try Tag Rugby rules apply for Divisions 2, 3 & 4
– Division 1 squads must include at least one female and one male player who are not in 2023 international squads while there can be no more than three internationals in Division 2, no more than two in Division 3 and none in Division 4
– Division 4 is primarily for beginner teams and therefore can include a maximum of four players who had played Try Tag Rugby leagues/tournaments prior to 2022
– All players must be registered for insurance purposes
– Teams will be seeded based on submitted squads. Squads must be complete by Monday 22nd May
– Seeding is done at the discretion of Try Tag Rugby, incomplete squads may result in higher seeding than expected
– Consumption of alcohol is prohibited until the tournament has concluded
PRESENTATION & AFTER-PARTY
On completion of the finals, the presentation will take place on the main stage before the after party kicks-off for all players with live music, multiple bars and food options, followed by a DJ and dance floor until midnight.
