Try Tag Rugby are excited to announce the expansion of Vets leagues to six locations for the Early Summer 2024 season.

After piloting the concept in London over winter, Vets leagues will be rolled out in London (Finsbury Park Weds & Clapham / Balham Thurs), Leeds (Thurs), Coventry (Mon), Reading (Thurs) and Leigh (Thurs).

Vets leagues are the perfect blend of camaraderie and competition for players in their 40’s, 50’s and even 60’s. The minimum age for men is 40 and women is 37.

Registration for Early Summer season 2024 is for individuals only, allowing us to mix up the teams with a range of ages, genders and tag experience levels. This helps create a league with a strong community feel, where all players get to know each other throughout the season.

After the games, players are encouraged to head for post-match drinks, reminiscing about those epic tries and game-winning moments!

Vets leagues begin from late April, with Free Taster Sessions running in advance in all locations.
