Early Summer League Registration Open!

Try Tag Rugby London Early Summer Leagues are now open for registration. Early Summer is the season when evening leagues in parks and commons return all across the capital, giving countless opportunities to play in all parts of London on multiple days of the week. It is also the season when most new players join, allowing many venues to run large beginner grades where new players can learn the game together over the course of the season. Many Early Summer venues will be extremely popular, so register your team with a deposit quickly to secure your place.

Venues. There are still many options to choose from in the mixed, men's and women's formats, across all seven days of the week and in all corners of London.

New players. A large number of Free Taster Sessions for new players are scheduled in the first three weeks of April. If you are a beginner most leagues will have beginner or beginner - intermediate grades which are perfect for learning the game in your first season.

Registration. Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams (groups) and players looking to join a team. Please note the following:

  • Team places are available strictly on a first to pay the £100 deposit basis until a league sells out (subject to Priority Window rules - see below).
  • Players joining on their own or with a small number of friends can apply to join a team. Places are availalble only when the fee to join a team has been paid.
  • Current teams are given a priority window of 17 days prior to the new season beginning (see below for full details & exact dates) to confirm their intent to take a place in their league of choice.
  • For the Early Summer season only Shoreditch teams will be automatically re-enrolled at their venue and should pay the £100 deposit 21 days prior to the league beginning to secure their place.

17 Day Priority Window

Due to strong demand for all our leagues we have put rules in place to ensure existing teams have every opportunity to rejoin their current league. Hence all leagues have an existing team priority window.

Once this window has closed we will allocate places in a league to teams who have registered and paid the £100 deposit confirming their place, based on the following priority system.

1. Existing teams who are currently playing at this league in the most recent season (if the league is currently running)*.

2. Teams moving from other Try Tag Rugby leagues where a league is not being run in the new season. This excludes leading into the Early Summer season where all teams playing during Spring are free to change venues and can still be counted as category 2. Or teams which registered and paid a deposit at this venue for the previous season but missed out due the league being oversubscribed. 

3. Whole teams of players applying to join a team or teams that previously played at the respective league within the previous three seasons. 

4. New teams, teams looking to move league or teams which haven't played for three or more seasons.

Where multiple teams fit in a category above, they will be prioritised in order of when they paid the £100 deposit to confirm their place. 

Once the 17-day priority window has closed registrations will continue to be taken on a first to register and pay the deposit basis until the league becomes full. Exact priority windows by league can be seen on the details / map page for each respective league, linked from the table above. 

*Leagues Closed for Registration

Not applicable for Early Summer.

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 or via card 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 (or OES), SAS (NZ Tag Football) and Tagrugby.ie from 2017 (Ireland). Your shorts must have the Try Tag Rugby logo or the logo of one of the other full ITF member nations 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 to be worn in our leagues or events on safety and consistency grounds! 

Weekend Tournaments, Festivals & Social Events

Try Tag Rugby are also running a number of weekend tournaments and festivals throughout the year. If you are interested in attending these events, please click here for details. 

Refereeing

As the number of teams in our leagues continues to grow, we are on the lookout for experienced players or people with experience of refereeing other sports to get involved as referees. You can referee as little as one game a night or seven days a week. For further details on upcoming referee workshops and how to get trained as a referee, click here
