Early Summer League Registration!
Registration is now open for our Early Summer Leagues which start from 24th April.
The longer days of early summer will see our leagues making a move back to grass as well as the return of a number of our popular grass venues from last summer including Leeds - Roundhay (Monday), Gildersome & Birstall (Wednesday) and Leeds - Kirkstall & Headingley (Thursday). We have also added some exciting new grass venues to the schedule, we will have leagues running in Clarence Park in Wakefield (Monday), Manston Park in Cross Gates (Tuesday) and Southfield Grange College in Bradford (Thursday). Add in the Bradford and Bingley league (Tuesday) and Leeds - Weetwood Sports Park league and we will have eight different venues to pick from this April!
All venues will be running mixed leagues however after a winter break we will also be re starting a men's league. The men's league will be taking place on a Wednesday night at our Gildersome and Birstall venue. The venue is easily accessible and its fairly central location 20-30 minutes away from all our other venues makes it ideal for any males looking to give the men's format of the game a try and play a second time during the week.
Registration for all the leagues 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.
All leagues come with after match social venues so that you can socialise with your team mates and opposition. For specific information on each league, including pricing, please click on the red league name in the schedule below. 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.

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!
