Manchester Leagues

Autumn League Registration!

Registration for our Manchester Autumn Leagues is now open, with leagues scheduled to kick-off from Tuesday 28th August.  

The followng Autumn Leagues will be taking place: Manchester East (Tuesday) and Manchester South (Wednesday).

Due to the shorter days of Autumn, both leagues now move on to 3G floodlit pitches.  The Manchester East League moves on the 3G pitches at the same venue, whilst the Manchester South League moves a short distance down the road from our summer venue at Mancunians Sports Club, to our exciting new venue at Chorlton High School. 

As well as a switch of playing surface, autumn will also see the Manchester South League switching to a longer 10 game league.  Details of the length of the leagues can be seen in the table below and prices for the Manchester South League have been adjusted to account for there being extra games in the league.

Games in the Manchester East League will be 40 minutes long and played in the mixed 6-a-side format wth teams consisting of 3 males and 3 females on the pitch, whilst games in the Manchester South League will be 35 minutes long and played in the mixed 7-a-side format with teams consisting of 4 males and 3 females.  

Details of our BristolCoventry, LondonThames Valley (Reading) and Yorkshire leagues can be seen in their respective sections of our website. 

Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams (groups) and individual players who would 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.

Both leagues come with post-match social venues so that you can socialise with your team mates and opposition.  

All standards are welcome to get involved in the league including complete beginners. There will be a friendly League Organiser at the venue to go through the rules with any new players on your first night. 

Specific details for the leagues vary, therefore please see the links in the table below for specific information on each league including pricing. For more general information on Tag Rugby and how our leagues work, please watch our ‘What is Tag Rugby?’ video to the right or see our FAQ section

If you are unsure or would just prefer to give it a try first before deciding whether to sign up for a league we have a couple of Free Taster Sessions taking place in August.

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 for postal delivery. 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, SAS (NZ Tag Football) and ITRA (Ireland). Your shorts must have the Try Tag Rugby logo or the logo of one of the other ITF organisations 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 on safety and consistency grounds!
