After successfully launching its first league in Wigan three years ago, Try Tag Rugby Wigan will be launching another league in the Rugby League stronghold of Leigh.

The 8-week mixed Early Summer League will kick-off in Leigh on Tuesday 26th April. For those wanting to give it a try before signing up for the league, Try Tag Rugby will be holding Free Taster Sessions in Leigh on Tuesday 5th 12th and 19th of April (venue TBC) and also on the grass pitches at St Peter’s Catholic High School, Orrell, Wigan on Monday 4th April and Monday 11th April, all starting at 6.30pm.

Try Tag Rugby Wigan Operations Manager Dylan Barlow said: “We’re delighted to be launching in Leigh in 2022. Leigh is home to Leigh Centurions and a hotbed of Rugby League.  

“For those with an interest in Rugby League, Try Tag Rugby’s close similarities to Rugby League make it a very attractive game to play. Importantly though the mixed minimal contact nature of the sport, combined with the social and fitness elements also make it attractive to people from outside the game.  It is just a fantastic way to keep fit, have fun and meet people.”
