Autumn League Registration Open!
Try Tag Rugby London Autumn leagues are now open for registration. With unflooldit summer venues finishing up for the year, teams return to our floodlit venues throughout the capital from the first week of September. Capacity for our Autumn leagues is significantly lower than Summer, so we recommend confirming your place ASAP to avoid missing out.
Despite the reduced capacity, there are still many options to choose from in both the mixed and men's formats, across all seven days of the week and in all corners of London.
Autumn Leagues are running at Barnes (Bank of England), Barnes (Rosslyn Park), Battersea Park, Borough, Catford-Lewisham, Clapham Common, Dulwich, East London RFC, Highbury, Highbury Fields, Kennington, Olympic Park (North), Olympic Park (South), Rotherhithe, Rotherhithe St Paul's, Shoreditch, Tooting Bec, Tower Bridge, Waterloo, Wembley, West London (Acton Central) and West London (Wasps).
Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams (groups) and individual players who'd like to be placed in a team. Team places are available strictly on a first to pay the deposit basis until a league sells out.
All leagues come with post-match social venues so that you can socialise with your team mates and opposition. Leagues vary in length, but are generally 10 or 11 games long during Autumn. Leagues vary in details, please see the links below for the specific information on each league including pricing, which is worked out per game. See our FAQ section for general information.
Capacity in our Autumn Leagues is limited, meaning competition for spaces in most leagues is fierce. We strongly recommend registering and confirming your place as early as possible, ideally by the 17 day existing team priority window to reduce the risk of missing out.
A small number of Free Taster Sessions for new players are scheduled towards the end of August. In 2018 we have specifically named a number of leagues to run beginner only grades and for Autumn these are Olympic Park (South) Thursday and Clapham Sunday. These league are likely to get a large number of new players. However if you are a beginner most other leagues will also have beginner - intermediate grades which are perfectly fine for learning the game in your first season.

*Players or teams who join leagues late in the season will have their registration fee adjusted to take into account any games missed early in the season.
Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams and individual players who'd like to be placed in a team. Registration closes six days before the respective league starting date unless space in a particular league is listed above. Team places are available on a first to pay the deposit basis, with current teams given a priority window of 17 days prior to the new season beginning (see below for full details & exact dates) to confirm their place in their league of choice. Many of the popular venues will sell-out well before the registration closing date. In this instance team registrations will be confirmed on a first to pay the deposit basis. To register for any Try Tag Rugby league or event listed above please click on the following links:
Note: Any team organisers looking to re-register an existing team should login to their account here, and re-enter the team for a new league through the my teams tab on your player dashboard.
All team registrations are not confirmed until a deposit payment of £100 has been paid. For players registering individually, your place is not confirmed until the full registration fee has been paid. Registration closes six days before the respective league starting date or whenever a league becomes full.
Leagues will fill up quickly! Team places are secured on a first to pay the league deposit basis. Don't leave confirming your registration until the last minute or your team may miss out!
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. For most Autumn Leagues it is as follows, however please check the specific details of your league on your venue page.
- For Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday leagues, 11am 17th August
- For most Thursday leagues, 11am 20th August
For all leagues, including other days, check the specific details of your league on your venue page.
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 individually registered players 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
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 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 ITRA (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 detials.
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.
If you have any questions email email@example.com or call us on 0203 137 2722.
