Try Tag Rugby welcomes organisations across a diverse range of industries, from blue chip multinationals to niche industry experts to participate in Corporate Challenge London.
The Corporate Challenge is our only tournament specifically for work teams and the perfect opportunity to get your workmates together for a unique team building and networking experience whilst enjoying the sport you love.
This is a charity event with the winners of each division invited to nominate the charity of their company's choice. Each charity will receive 25% of the overall amount to be donated directly by Try Tag Rugby. In 2019, £4000 was donated to chosen charities.
The Corporate Challenge is an opportunity for new and existing corporate teams alike to compete for Cup, Plate, Bowl and Shield titles, which allows your team to play at the correct level. Last year's tournament attracted companies including Team Sky, Capgemini, Sport England, Accenture, JLL, Shell, Chaucer Group, Clintons and many more.
