London Tag Rugby Championships – Saturday 30th June
The London Tag Rugby Championships enters its ninth year in 2018 and we’re planning our biggest and best event ever!
If you haven't played at London Championships before, you are seriously missing out, and if you have, then we've turned up the volume on this years event - you won't recognise it!
Taking place on Saturday 30th June at Wasps FC's Twyford Avenue Sports Club in Acton, London (W3 9QA), we're bringing a festival atmosphere to Try Tag Rugby's biggest event of the year.
Join us for an action-packed day of Tag Rugby, and so much more including;
- This tournament is shaped to accommodate all levels of experience, ranging from highly experience mixed teams to beginner mixed teams and for those who prefer the competitiveness of men's we are also running a men's division
- Start the day as you mean to go on - grab a cuppa and a bacon butty on arrival to set yourself up for the day
- We have tournament partners - that means prizes, giveaways and more...
- You may be a Tag Rugby All Star - but how do your skills compare when it comes to the bucking bronco after a day on the Tag field?
- You may be good at non-contact - but how will you fare on the full contact Gladiator Joust?
- Do your drinking skills measure up to your rugby skills? - We are bringing Beer Pong to the after party too.....
- A real party atmosphere - DJ, marquee, outside bars serving beers, ciders and cocktails all night long with a Pizzas, BBQ and Burritos available too.
- LATE LICENSE - no need to make evening plans - we have your whole night covered till 1am - Make sure you invite your mates to come too - there is no extra cost for the after-party, the more the merrier
- Night Tube - that's right - it's only a 10 minute walk from the bar to the station
Teams will play in the 7-a-side format, mixed (4 males & 3 females on the pitch) with Men's, Social and Beginner divisions. A grade mixed will be played in the 8-a-side format (4 males & 4 females).
Note: Players will only be allowed to participate in one team throughout the day.
Teams in their grades 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.
ON THE DAY
The Championships will kick-off at 11:00am and conclude at approximately 5:00pm. It’ll be played in the 7-a-side format (4 males & 3 females on the pitch in mixed grades) using standard Try Tag Rugby rules. All teams will receive a minimum of 90 minutes game time and some finals will take place on Wasps beautiful first team pitch.
Note, there will be no Saturday leagues taking place on 30th June, so that all teams and players can get involved!
As well as prizes for the winning teams, an award will be given to the team which comes in the best matching fancy dress outfits. This year's fancy dress theme will be announced shortly.

Individual entry £24
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 £24. If you've only got part of a team available please email email@example.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 11am on Tuesday 26th June 2018 unless the Festival is sold out before this date.
FANCY DRESS THEME
This year's fancy dress theme is London Underground so get your thinking caps on as there's a team prize for the best outfit on the day.
We’ll have a full merchandise shop open all day which will accept cash or card payments. We’ll be selling the Official London Tag Rugby Championships shorts and tights, along with a number of other items including various Tag Rugby shorts and tights.
The official event shorts and tights are available to pre-order from our online shop www.trytagrugbyshop.com.
To ensure your team is graded and seeded correctly please ensure that your squad list is up to date in the system by the registration deadline of 11am Friday 22nd June.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Please be aware that there is a talent cap on International representative players in place for this Festival which may affect your team. For more details click here.
