We are excited to welcome the inaugural TagFest™ Oxford to the distinguished list of locations taking part in the TagFest™ Series in 2021.
As one of the UK’s top 10 most visited cities, it’s sure to become a very popular addition to the series. Teams from across the UK and beyond are invited to participate. Accommodating all levels from beg inner to elite, this event will enable all players to do their talking both on and off the pitch.
An after-party will be held onsite at Oxford Rugby Football Club. This party will then move into Oxford City Centre for the After After Party late into the night. More information will be confirmed closer to the event. All social elements will depend on the Covid-19 situation and will be adapted accordingly at the time.
For those travelling teams or just those true festival goers, TagFest™ Oxford is also the only TagFest™ in the series to offer camping! More information will be released on this shortly to enable you to build this into your plans.
Additional unique components are also planned to be added to this event, and these will be announced through social media as we build up to the event.
- All games will be 7-a-side and will have a guaranteed game time of at least 90 minutes
- Regular Try Tag Rugby Rules apply
- Maximum of 12 players per squad, minimum 3 female on the pitch at any one time
- Teams will be seeded and graded based on submitted squad lists prior to the tournament
- Squad lists must be complete by the end of Sunday 20th June at the very latest
- Pools will be created which in turn will break out into Cup, Plate and Bowl etc competitions so there is always something to play for
