Tag history was made on Saturday 16th July as 108 teams descended on King’s House Sports Ground, Chiswick for TagFest London 2022 – the largest, single-venue, Tag Rugby tournament ever to be staged in the northern hemisphere. While the bulk of the teams were London based, including the Turtles team who won the top prize for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year, there were also teams from Try Tag Rugby’s Yorkshire, Thames Valley and Edinburgh North regions.

Players from Bristol, Coventry, Manchester and Wigan also joined a festival of Tag Rugby that had an international flavour with the addition of teams from Ireland and France. With over 1,200 players across four divisions that each played through Cup, Plate, Bowl and Shield competitions it was a truly unmissable day in the growth of Tag Rugby in the UK.

Tournament Director Will Shepherd said: “It’s brilliant to see Try Tag Rugby taking steps forward with every iteration of our flagship tournament. Once again we’ve beaten our personal record for number of teams, while the players are responsible for the standard of Tag growing year on year. The extra time final between Turtles and Cuzzies was played to a capacity crowd that cheered on every tag, kick and try before getting stuck into the afterparty with the same level of enthusiasm! To have such perfect weather to cap it all off was a bonus.”

Thanks to our hosts King’s House Sports Ground; PSS International Removals, our official referee partner and all of our food and drink vendors.
