On Saturday (June 12th 2021) a new record was set as 100 teams competed at TagFest™ London, at Richmond Athletic Association in south-west London.
This became the largest ever Tag Rugby tournament hosted by Try Tag Rugby, breaking the TagFest London attendance in 2019 which hosted 90 teams.
Prior to 2019 the record stood at 66 teams at London Champs in 2018.
Turtles continued their dominance of one-day major tournaments winning the Tier 1 Cup. Turtles won the top prize at London Champs in 2017 and 2018 and TagFest London in 2019. The final was almost an exact repeat of the TagFest London final in 2019, going to drop-off (golden point) with The Alpacas the opponents once again, and Turtles scoring the winning try through Nick Wilkes.
The PSS International Removals Referee of the Tournament was awarded to Tom Entwistle who received £150 courtesy of PSS. A big thank you to all our referees for their efforts on what was a very warm day.
Thanks to PSS International Removals our official referee partner, the team at Richmond Athletic Association, our food and drink vendors, the Try Tag Rugby staff and volunteers, and of course all of the players for making it a fantastic return to major tournaments.
