Wasps Tag Rugby Festival breaks more records

Try Tag Rugby’s Wasps Tag Rugby Festival broke last year’s record to become the largest adult Tag Rugby festival in the UK.

Over 750 players took part in the day, representing 65 teams across four tiers and 15 pitches. The annual festival has seen a steady increase in teams from 30 in 2014, 37 in 2015, 50 in 2016 and this year topping at 65 teams. The Festival sold-out four weeks before the event.

The main winners on the day were Turtles who defeated The Rebelz in a well contested final in front of a good crowd on the main pitch. With Rebels Tier 1 Cup Runner's Up, the Tier 1 Plate Champions were Straight T'werk.

Duck, Duck, Goose were Tier 2 Cup Champions while Brady & The Tramps won the Tier 2 Plate. Tier 3 Cup Winners were Great Minds Tag a Like with The People's Republic of Tagwan winners of the Tier 3 Plate. Tier 4 Champions were Mission Improbable, The Claw were Tier 4 Plate Champions and the Bowl went to Tag Ninjas.

Top individual awards for Player of the Tournament went to Guillaume Hammersley (Speight's) and Garnet Mackinder (Straight T'werk). 

The full award winners are listed below.
