Thames Valley Leagues

2017 Reading Spring League

The Reading (Sonning) spring league is again running at Redingensians RFC, with the new season set to kick-off on Monday 27th February. A free taster session is scheduled for February 20th. Building on the success of 2016 where the league regularly ran with two divisions, spring 2017 is expected to be our biggest season yet. 

Redingensians has recently renovated first class facilities, including well looked after Rugby pitches, full changing facilities and an on site bar. The club house has a large balcony (see photo below), perfect for a cool drink after playing Tag Rugby! Parking is available on site.

The Reading league is very social with teams regularly mixing in the bar over a drink or bite to eat after stepping off the field. New players and teams of all skill and fitness levels (from beginners to experienced Rugby players) join the league regularly, being made extremely welcome.

Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams and individual players who'd like to be placed in a team.



Note: Any team organisers looking to re-register an existing team should login to their account here, and re-enter the team for a new league through the my teams tab on your player dashboard. 





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. Registration closes six days before the league starting date or whenever the league becomes full.

Don't leave confirming your registration until the last minute or your team may miss out!

Tag Rugby Shorts

Official Try Tag Rugby shorts or Try Tag Rugby ladies' tights are essential equipment for playing the game, and must be purchased before taking to the pitch in all Try Tag Rugby competitions. Shorts can always be bought from Try Tag Rugby staff by paying £12 in cash at all our leagues or events. Shorts (£12), short tights (£23) & mid length tights (£26) 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 Rugby shorts or Tag Rugby tights we allow in our leagues are brands sanctioned by the International Tag Federation such are Oztag, SAS (NZ Tag Football) and ITRA (Ireland). Homemade shorts, any other brands of shorts and Tag Rugby belts are strictly not allowed!


As the number of teams in our leagues continues to grow, we are on the lookout for experienced players or people with experience of refereeing other sports to get involved as referees. For further details and to find out about upcoming referee's workshops click here.
