Try Tag Rugby Yorkshire and The Bradford Bulls Foundation are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership which will see them work together to promote Try Tag Rugby Leagues in Bradford as well as supporting the foundation’s extremely valuable work in the community.

As part of the partnership Try Tag Rugby Yorkshire will be launching a brand-new Bradford South Mixed League on a Thursday night at Lightcliffe Academy from 6th May. This will be in addition to the existing Bradford & Bingley Mixed and Men’s Leagues which run at Beckfoot School in Bingley on a Tuesday evening.

Try Tag Rugby is a form of Rugby League that has changed thousands of people’s lives across the country by making exercise easy, fun and the social highlight of their week.

Carl Duckels, National Licence Manager at Try Tag Rugby commented:

“Try Tag Rugby are thrilled to be partnering up with The Bradford Bulls Foundation and to be associated with one of the biggest names in Rugby League.”

“We hope the partnership will not only see more people giving Tag Rugby a try, but that it will also help support the foundation to continue the amazing work it does in the community.”

Paul Mitchell, Head of The Bradford Bulls Foundation added:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Try Tag Rugby. The number of people playing in Try Tag Rugby Leagues across the country speaks for itself.

“If, like me, you’re not built for the full contact version of the sport which we all enjoy watching then Try tag is for you. As well as the fun competitive element, it’s a great way to help you stay fit in a friendly, sociable environment and people of all abilities can take part which is what makes it so accessible. You may even make new friends as well!

“We’ll also signpost participants in our other wellbeing programmes to Try Tag so they can continue to make a positive difference for themselves.”
