Unsure? Curious? Want to Try Tag Rugby before committing to a league? Then why not come along to one of our Taster Sessions and give it a try!
Although we are sure you will love it, there is no obligation to sign up for a league or tournament if you decide it’s not for you.
The fun and friendly sessions are a perfect chance for adult players (male & female) who have never played Tag Rugby before to have a go and see what it’s like. Players of all sporting abilities and Rugby experience levels (Rugby League, Rugby Union, Touch Rugby etc) including complete Rugby novices are welcome!
Tag Rugby is a great way to improve your fitness and mental wellbeing, but there is no need to be super fit to start playing. The taster sessions are a gentle introduction to the game and suitable for all levels of fitness.
At times when there are no Taster Sessions open for registration or none suitable for you, we can potentially arrange a trial game for you in a league. Please contact your local region and we may be able to arrange this at a venue where there is space.
Note that we have a few high demand Taster Sessions that are paid for. The deposit payment can be used as credit towards a future league if the Taster Session is attended. See Taster Session deposit agreement for details.
What to expect
We ask all participants in the Taster Session to arrive 15 minutes before it starts. On arrival at the venue you will be greeted by one of our friendly and easy to spot venue supervisors, wearing identifiable TTR staff kit, who will give you a pair of Tag Rugby shorts to borrow and tell you where you need to go next.
Each Taster Session will start with an introduction, a briefing on the basic rules and skills of the game, followed by some fun practice drills. This progression will lead into a game and participants having an opportunity to play their first game of Tag Rugby! All sessions will be taken by an experienced, friendly and welcoming Try Tag Rugby venue supervisor, referee, coach or representative player, who will be able to answer any Tag Rugby specific questions that you may have.
After the session there will be a friendly after match social in the venue’s nearby partner pub. Tag Rugby is a very social game and this gives you a chance to make a heap of new friends as well as a chance to enjoy the full Try Tag Rugby experience!
Private group taster sessions – ideal for getting a work team together!
If you have a group of 10 or more people and you can’t attend one of the scheduled Taster Sessions above we would be happy to organise a private Taster Session at a venue, time and location to suit both parties. Please contact your local region for more information.
What if I can't attend a Taster Session?
Don’t worry if you can’t attend a Taster Session, you don’t need to have been on one in order to register or play in one of our leagues. Lots of people sign up to our leagues and events without having played before. All our leagues and events have a friendly venue supervisor who will meet you on your first night and be able to give you a briefing on the basic rules as well as some tips on how to start playing.
The League Organiser/League Administrator will also be on hand throughout the season should you have any further queries or want any further help or advice!
