Summer League Registration!
Registration for our Yorkshire Summer Leagues is now open, with leagues scheduled to kick-off from Monday 18th June.
The followng Summer Leagues will be running: Hull (Monday), Leeds - Roundhay (Monday), Wakefield - Clarence Park (Monday), Bradford & Bingley (Tuesday), Leeds - Cross Gates (Manston Park) (Tuesday), Gildersome & Birstall (Wednesday), Leeds - Weetwood YMCA (Wednesday), Bradford - Southfield Grange (Thursday) and Leeds - Kirkstall & Headingley (Thursday).
All leagues will be played in the mixed format, with 6-a-side leagues consisting of four males and two females while in 7-a-side leagues teams will consist of four males and three females. Although most leagues are for players of all standards, the Wakefield - Clarence Park, Leeds - Roundhay, Leeds - Weetwood Sports Park and Leeds - Kirkstall & Headingley leagues will be running both an A Grade division and a Beginner/Intermediate division.
Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams (groups) and individual players who'd 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.
All leagues come with post-match social venues so that you can socialise with your team mates and opposition. Specific details for the leagues vary, therefore please see the links in the table below for specific information on each league including pricing. For more general information on Tag Rugby and how our leagues work, please watch our ‘What is Tag Rugby?’ video to the right or see our FAQ section.
With a number of our Early Summer Leagues selling out we strongly recommend registering and confirming your place as early as possible to ensure you secure your place at your chosen league. Existing teams have a priority deadline of Friday 1st June (Tuesday - Thursday Night Leagues) and Friday 15th June (Monday Night Leagues) to register for their existing league, see the section containing details of the Existing Team Priority Deadline below for more details.
If you don't currently play and would like to give Tag Rugby a Try before deciding whether to join a league or if you know somebody who might be interested in giving it a try, we have a large number of Free Taster Sessions scheduled during June. Summer is the perfect time for new players to join leagues, with a large influx of new players able to learn the game together.

Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams and individual players who would like to be placed in a team. Registration for the leagues closes 6 days before the respective league starting date unless space in a particular league is listed above. Team places are available on a first to pay the deposit basis, with current teams given a priority window until the end of Friday 1st June (Tuesday - Thursday Leagues) and Friday 15th June (Monday Leagues) to confirm their place in the league of their choice. Please note that some of the more popular venues could sell out before the registration closing date. Details of how the priority window works are included in the section below.

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 respective league starting date or whenever a league becomes full.
Some leagues will fill up quickly! Team places are secured on a first to pay the league deposit basis. Don't leave confirming your registration until the last minute or your team may miss out!
Due to strong demand for places in a number of our leagues we have put the following rules are in place to ensure existing teams have every opportunity to rejoin their current league. The existing team priority deadline for Yorkshire Leagues is the end of Friday 1st June for Tuesday - Thursday Leagues and the end of Friday 15th June for Monday Leagues.
During this priority window we will allocate places in a league to teams who have registered and paid the £100 deposit confirming their place, based on the following priority system.
1. Existing teams who are currently playing at this league in the most recent season.
2. Teams moving from other Try Tag Rugby leagues where a league is not being run in the new season. Or teams which registered and paid a deposit at this venue for the previous season but missed out due the league being oversubscribed.
3. Teams that previously played at the respective league within the previous three seasons.
4. New teams or teams looking to move league.
Where multiple teams fit in a category above, they will be prioritised in order of when they paid the £100 deposit to confirm their place.
Once the priorty deadline has passed registrations will continue to be taken on a first to register and pay the deposit basis until the league becomes full.
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 for postal delivery. 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!
Weekend Tournaments, Festivals & Social Events
Try Tag Rugby Yorkshire and Try Tag Rugby are also running a number of weekend tournaments and festivals throughout the year. If you are interested in attending these events, please click here for details.
As the number of teams in our leagues continues to grow, we are on the lookout for additional referees. All levels of experience are welcome including those who have never refereed before. We will provide free training where required. Once trained up you can referee as little as one game a night or multiple games 4 nights a week. For further details please click here.
