Corporate Challenge London 2017 – Friday 7th April

Corporate Challenge London 2017 will take place on Friday 7th April 2017 at East London Rugby Club, West Ham (E15 3BP).

Corporate Challenge London is a great opportunity to get your workmates together for a unique team-building and networking experience whilst enjoying Tag Rugby. This year we are supporting the UK’s leading blood cancer charity, Anthony Nolan. Anthony Nolan matches incredible volunteers willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer who desperately need a lifesaving transplant.

Corporate Challenge London is our only tournament specifically for work teams. The tournament is an opportunity for new and existing corporate teams alike to compete for Cup, Plate and Bowl titles, which allows your team to play at the correct level. Previous tournaments have attracted companies including Google, Yahoo!, Coke, Pcubed and Stephenson Harwood.

East London Rugby Club is just a five minute walk from West Ham station and only a short commute from Canary Wharf and The City via the Jubilee, Hammersmith & City, District, DLR or National Rail lines (just one stop from Fenchurch St). Matches will take place on grass and 3G tag rugby pitches.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT
Games will kick-off at 5pm and run until 8:45pm and be played with separate men’s and mixed competitions.

Teams can include a squad of a minimum seven players (four male and three female players on the pitch at all times in mixed, and seven males on the pitch in men's) or a maximum squad size of 12. The recommended squad size is 10-12.

ENTRY COST
Team entry costs £395 per team
Each team will receive 10 pairs of Tag Rugby shorts with your company logo on them.

The deadline for finalising the design and placing the order is Friday 10th March at 9am. These Tag Rugby shorts can also be used in our other one day events and leagues. Once your team has registered, we will liaise with the team organiser to finalise your Tag Rugby shorts graphic. Additional Tag Rugby shorts can be provided on request for the cost of £16 per pair.

Teams which played in a previous Corporate Challenge and don't require shorts can opt out of Tag Rugby shorts and pay £275 to just enter the tournament. Teams who register after the shorts deadline and require shorts, can purchase our generic Try Tag Rugby playing shorts for £12 each or hire shorts for £4 a pair.

Please Note: International Tag Federation approved Tag Rugby shorts are compulsory for play.
