Wasps Tag Rugby Festival - Saturday 1st April



The annual Wasps Tag Rugby Festival will take place on Saturday 1st April 2017 at Wasps FC's Twyford Avenue Sports Club in Acton (W3 9QA).

Last year's Festival was a record-breaking sell-out featuring 50 teams and over 500 players. With the Wasps first team pitch now available for use, the 2017 Festival is expected to be bigger still!

Our Festivals and Tournaments are a great opportunity to play against different players from outside the leagues you play in. If your usual team can't all play or you just fancy a change of team then don't worry, you can still play. Just sign up as a group or individual and we will create a team for you or place you in a team. Signing up as an individual is a great way to meet new people.

The Festival will kick-off at 12pm and be played in the 7-a-side format (4 males & 3 females on the pitch) using standard Try Tag Rugby rules, with teams seeded into two tiers. All teams will receive a minimum of 90 minutes game time and some finals will take place on the first team pitch. Note, there will be no Saturday leagues taking place on 1st April, so that all teams and players can get involved!

Afterwards, players can enjoy a bite to eat at a number of different food providers. Post Festival drinks will take place at Wasps three onsite bars, where a DJ will play our favourite tunes from 6.30pm till late. It’s a great opportunity for a night out with your team!

To ensure your team is graded correctly please ensure that your squad list is up to date in the system by the registration deadline of 9am Tuesday 29th March.

If your festival team is significantly stronger or weaker than your usual weekly team but you will be using the same team name, please email info@trytagrugby.com to let us know before we seed the teams.

For long running teams with a slightly different squad to normal, we recommend you set-up a “Festival” version of your team within our system by registering a new team, so that you can just include your players taking part on the day.

Note: Please be aware that there is a talent cap in place for this Festival which may affect your team if you are entering Tier 1. For more details click here.


Teams will play in the 7-a-side format (4 males & 3 females on the pitch).

Teams in their tiers will start with a pool phase. They will then break away into Cup, Plate & Bowl divisions in each tier depending on each team’s standings after the pool phase.

Team entry costs £180 per team
Individual entry costs £22

If you don’t have a team, Try Tag Rugby also accepts individual registrations, where we will place you in a team for the cost of £22. If you've only got part of a team available please email info@trytagrugby.com and we can not only help you find extra players, but also quote you a reasonable part-team price.

Registration is open to teams, groups and individual players who'd like to be placed in a team. Team places are available on a first to pay the deposit basis. Existing players looking to re-register an existing team should login to their account first before clicking on register a team below. 

(Ideal if you only have some of your team available on the day)

​(Ideal if you fancy playing in a different team, or if your usual team is unavailable on the day)

The registration deadline is by 9am on Tuesday 28th March 2017 unless the Festival is sold out before this date.
