Autumn League Registration!
Registration is now open for our Manchester Autumn League. With the earlier sunsets and the need for a floodlit venue, autumn see's the Manchester league switch to a Wednesday night and the floodlit astroturf pitches of William Hulme Grammar School a short distance away from our Mancunians Sports Club summer venue. The Autumn League will start on Wednesday 6th September.
Registration for the mixed league is open to whole teams, part-teams (groups) and individual players who would like to be placed in a team. Team places are available strictly on a first to pay the deposit basis until a league sells out.
The Autumn League is eight weeks long and teams will play one 40 minute game each week. Teams will generally play in a round robin league system for the first five to six weeks before then finishing with play offs and finals. All teams play the full eight weeks however, with the teams not making the finals playing off for positions.
All standards are welcome to get involved in the league including complete beginners. There will be a friendly competition supervisor at the venue to go through the rules with any new players on your first night. If you are unsure or would just prefer to give it a try first before deciding whether to sign up for a league then why not come along to one of our free taster sessions. For more information on our free taster sessions including how to register for a session, please click here.

Tag Rugby Shorts
Official Try Tag Rugby shorts or Try Tag Rugby ladies' tights (or International Tag Federation approved brands) must be purchased before taking to the pitch in all Try Tag Rugby leagues.
Tag shorts can always be bought from Try Tag Rugby staff by paying £12 in cash at all our leagues or events. Tag shorts (£12) and tights (£23) can also be purchased in our online shop, to be either picked up at your venue or to be posted out. If you already have a pair of Tag Rugby shorts or Tag Rugby tights, please note due to safety reasons (ie length of the shorts being longer than the tags) and consistency (ie strength and location of the Velcro patch) the only other brands of Tag shorts or Tag tights we allow in our leagues are brands sanctioned by the International Tag Federation (ITF) such are Oztag, SAS (NZ Tag Football) and ITRA (Ireland). Your shorts must have the Try Tag Rugby logo or the logo of one of the other ITF organisations on them to be allowed to be worn in our leagues. Homemade shorts, any other brands of shorts (both UK made or abroad) and Tag Rugby belts are strictly not allowed on safety and consistency grounds!
