North London Tag Festival – Saturday 28th October
The North London Tag Festival returns on Saturday 28th October.
This annual event, scheduled in the autumn season is a great opportunity for mixed teams to get a good last hit out before the winter chill kicks in!
The Festival kicks off at 11.15am and will take place at Saracens ARFC's fantastic playing fields in Southgate, North London.
Afterwards, all players can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat at the Saracens onsite bar until midnight, when the party will move to another location (venue TBC).
Teams will play in the 7-a-side format, mixed (4 males & 3 females on the pitch) using standard Try Tag Rugby rules. All teams will receive a minimum of 90 minutes game time throughout the tournament.
Teams will start with a pool phase. We will then proceed to break away into Cup, Plate & Bowl divisions in each tier depending on each team's standings after the pool phase.
Players will only be allowed to participate in one team throughout the day.
To ensure your team is graded correctly please ensure that your squad list is up to date in the system by the registration deadline of Midday Monday 24th October.
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 email@example.com to let us know before we grade and seed the teams.
For long running teams with a slightly different squad to normal, we strongly 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.
To further help us grade your team correctly, we have set-up three alternative levels you can register for.
Advanced - For A grade standard teams
Intermediate - For intermediate teams
Beginner - For new or inexperienced teams
Please note, this is just to help us get an indication as to the strength of your team. The exact structure of the festival and gradings will be determined once we access the strength of the teams registered.
Note: Please be aware that there is a talent cap in place for this festival which may affect your team. For more details click here.
Team entry costs £180 per team
Individual entry costs £22
If you don’t have a team, Try Tag Rugby also accepts individual registrations, where we will place you in a team. If you've only got part of a team available please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can not only help you find extra players, but also quote you a reasonable part-team price.
Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams and individual players who'd like to be placed in a team. Team places are available on a first to pay the deposit basis.
Team entry costs £180, alternatively individual entry costs £22. Registration closes midday, Monday 24th October, however please note that capacity is limited to 40 teams so the event may sell-out long before the registration deadline.
All team registrations are not confirmed until a deposit payment of £100 has been paid. For players registering individually, your place is not confirmed until the full registration fee has been paid.
NOTE: Try Tag Rugby reserves the right to grade your team accordingly. To give us the best judgement, please make sure your squad list is up to date in the Try Tag Rugby system by Midday, Monday 23rd October.
