2015 Tag World Cup

Great Britain took two teams out to the 2016 World Cup, ensuring the depth and talent of the squad was at its peak. This was the second time that the British competed at the Tag World Cup.

In the 2012 Tag World Cup the Great Britain and Ireland Mixed Open team had a very tight loss to the eventual world champions, New Zealand.

Great Britain, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa and almost all the Pacific Island nations competed for the prestigious 2015 Tag World Cup across mixed, men's and ladies divisions in multiple age categories.

Great Britain mixed open team just missed out on the quarter finals, after two narrow losses in the pool stage. The men's 30s team exceeded expectations by qualifying for their first ever World Cup quarter final appearance.
