Play for Yorkshire at the 2017 London Tag Rugby Championships

Join us for Try Tag Rugby Yorkshire’s big day out to the capital and play for one of our Yorkshire teams as we join the party at Try Tag Rugby's marquee one day featival, the London Tag Rugby Championships!

Now in its 8th year, over 60 teams are expected to take part from across London, the rest of the UK and around the world (previous entrants have included teams from Tonga, France and Ireland).

With fancy dress, the theme this year is animals, and a giant marquee on site to host the after party, there is a real party atmosphere throughout the day! The London Tag Rugby Championships is one of the highlights of the Tag Rugby Calendar and one that every Tag Rugby player should experience!

Try Tag Rugby Yorkshire took two teams down to the event last year and this year would like to take more people down to the event. As I am sure those who have travelled down to the event would agree its a great day and weekend if you choose to stay down there. Come and help us fly the flag for Yorkshire both on the Tag pitch and on the dance floor by registering to play. If the team you play for regularly wants to go on tour then thats great, but if not then you can join one of the Yorkshire teams by signing up as and individual and we will put you on one of the teams.

FREE PRE-TOURNAMENT PRACTICE MATCHES, 2PM - 3:30PM, SATURDAY 10TH JUNE, KIRKSTALL

For those individuals interested in going down we will be having a get together and some practice games on Saturday 10th, 2pm - 3:30pm in Kirkstall. If you can't make it to this don't worry you can still join one of the teams.

MAKING THE JOURNEY - ACCOMMODATION AND TRANSPORT

You will need to organise your own transport and accommodation for the trip, but with a bit of planning and organisation it doesn't have to cost the earth. There are plenty of options to suit every budget.

Transport

Car

Have you or somebody on your team got a car? If so then why not load the car up with your friends and drive down. The event is taking place at Wasps FC's Twyford Avenue Sports Club in Acton, London (W3 9QA). The journey time non-stop from Leeds is roughly 3 hrs 30 minutes. There is free parking at the ground.

Train 

With a journey time of just over 2hrs this is one of the quickest ways to get to London. If you book in advance or use the group ticket offers it doesn't have to cost the earth either.

Accommodation

Wasps FC's Twyford Avenue Sports Ground is just a short walk from Ealing Common and Acton Town Underground stations (both served by the Piccadilly and District Lines) mean there is a wide and varied choice of accommodation to suit all budgets within easy travelling distance. With the after party taking place at the same venue in the evening, you may however want to look for accommodation more local to make the journey home late at night easier.

Cheap Central London University Summer Accommodation

Many of the London Universities often let their student rooms out to non students for short term stays during the summer when their students aren't there. University Rooms is one website which contains details of some Universities that do this and also allows you to book rooms online. Click here for their website. 

Hostels and Hotels

There are a number of websites with details of London accommodation. A couple of suggested sites are Trip Advisor, please click here, and Hotels.com, please click here.  If you are looking to stay in a Hostel, then one hostel specific website is Hostel World, click here for their website.
