THAMES VALLEY Leagues
Try Tag Rugby Thames Valley EARLY SUMMER Registration Now Open
These are now open for registration. We are excited to launch a brand new Reading Thursday League at King’s Meadow for Early Summer. For the Summer Seasons our Wednesday Oxford League will move to South Park Chenney School Sports Fields and our Reading Monday League will be moving to the fantastic Berkshire County Sports Club.
If you wish to use an outstanding credit on your account for a deposit or individual registration, please contact us, stating which league you or your team wishes to register for.
Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams (groups) and players looking to join a team. For any leagues which don’t sell-out in advance, registration generally closes four working days prior to the league commencing.
Ringers & Dual Registration
As we are now comfortable with our procedures around COVID-19 sanitisation & how they are working, we have decided to revert to normal rules for ringers & dual registrations. Dual registration is now allowed again at venues where two different categories run on the same evening, i.e. a mixed and a women’s league.
However please be aware that dual registration in two teams for the same league on the same night (i.e. two mixed teams on the same night) is only allowed if approved by us. Any players who wish to be approved to dual register in a league should contact us.
The maximum squad size over the course of the season remains at 20, however due to COVID-19 procedures matchday squads will be limited to 12 players to make measures introduced manageable.
New players and teams of all skills and fitness levels (from beginners to experienced players) are very welcome. If you are a beginner most leagues will have beginner – intermediate divisions which are perfect for learning the game in your first season. . If you want to try before committing, a full schedule of Free Taster Sessions are being held in Oxford and Reading in the lead up to each season. If you can’t attend a Free Taster Session, don’t worry you can still join a league. All new players will be given a rule briefing on arrival at the venue.
Tag Rugby Shorts
International Tag Federation (ITF) shorts or tights must be purchased before taking to the pitch in all Try Tag Rugby leagues.
Tag shorts can be bought from Try Tag Rugby staff at our leagues using card only. There are also hire shorts available for £4 per session (free on taster sessions). For full details on the permitted shorts/tights please see the What Equipment Do I Need section in our FAQs.
