With London experiencing some sunny weather over the weekend and a preview of what’s to come in spring, it’s time to dust off the boots and get those Tag Rugby shorts out of the cupboard as Try Tag Rugby’s spring leagues kick off from 1st March onward.
Spring leagues will be taking place at Barnes, Battersea (men’s & mixed), Borough, Clapham Common, Highbury, Rotherhithe (men’s & mixed), Shoreditch, Tooting Bec, Upper Holloway & White City, so if you live in London there will be a competition accessible to you.
These leagues will be played on a variety of surfaces with the Battersea, Clapham Common, Highbury, Shoreditch, Tooting Bec & White City venues being played on the traditional grass which is great for those spectacular diving tags!
Barnes and Borough are played on Astroturf with the Barnes competition being played at the state of the art facilities at the Bank of England sports centre, with the onsite bar literally a minute away from pitch side hence keeping this league particularly social.
The Rotherhithe venue is played on 3G grass with the new Upper Holloway venue being played on the brand new 4G surface.
Spring league registration is now open for teams, part teams and individuals looking to be placed in a team. The majority of leagues have divisions to cater for various standards. New players are welcome.
In other news, if you’re single or a couple looking for something different to do this Valentine’s Day, Try Tag Rugby’s Valentine’s Tag Festival might be up your alley.
Try Tag Rugby doesn’t profess to be matchmakers but they do give you a chance to meet lots of people in a natural no pressure environment whilst having lots of fun.
Since adult Tag Rugby was introduced to London in 2009, there have been numerous Tag Rugby relationships and even a couple of marriages!
“One of the reasons I think there have been so many successful relationships at Tag Rugby is it is such a great way to meet people in a no pressure environment. It’s just lots of fun and very social! Everybody is there to play Tag Rugby as well, so you automatically have something in common and a subject with which to start a conversation, even a complete stranger.” – A player who is in a relationship through Tag Rugby.
