The Championships will see teams from both the Monday and Thursday leagues in the Thames Valley region coming together with teams from London and further afield. Like all Try Tag Rugby one day tournaments there will be a prize giving presentation and post tournament party.

Teams and players new to Tag Rugby are more than welcome to get involved with a rules briefing being provided before the games get underway.

As well as the Tag Rugby there will be an award to the team in the best fancy dress. The fancy dress theme will be chosen by you! Vote here. 

The University of Reading is a 7-minute drive from Reading train station.

The tournament will kick-off at 12pm and reach a conclusion at approximately 5.30pm.

LIVE OUTSIDE THE THAMES VALLEY AND TAKE YOUR TEAM ON TOUR
We would love to welcome our Tag Rugby friends from around the UK, Ireland and the rest of the world to come and join the fun at the inaugural Thames Valley Tag Rugby Championships.

You can get from London to Reading via train from Paddington station in under an hour and it's only an hour and a half drive away from central London. With advance tickets and group ticket offers there is no need to break the bank.

TEAM GRADING
To ensure your team is graded and seeded correctly please ensure that your squad list is up to date in the system by the registration deadline of 9am Monday 14th August.

If your festival team is significantly stronger or weaker than your usual weekly team but you will be using the same team name, please email info@trytagrugby.com to let us know before we seed the teams.

For long running teams with a slightly different squad to normal, we recommend you set-up a “Festival” version of your team within our system by registering a new team, so that you can just include your players taking part on the day.

TALENT CAP
Note: Please be aware that there is a talent cap on International representative players in place for this Festival which may affect your team. For more details click here.

FESTIVAL FORMAT
The Thames Valley Tag Rugby Championships will be in the mixed 7-a-side format and matches will be played under standard Try Tag Rugby A-grade rules. All standard teams are welcome to enter as pending on team numbers we will break away into Cup, Plate & Bowl divisions after the pool stage so you'll get to play against teams of similar standard.
