Taster Sessions

Want to Try Tag Rugby before committing to a league? Then a Taster Session is for you.

Give Tag a Try!

The fun and friendly sessions are a perfect chance for adult players (all genders welcome) who have never played Tag Rugby before to have a go and see what it’s like.

Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve never picked up a Rugby ball or not played Tag Rugby since school, these sessions will go through the absolute basics of the sport, building up your skills and confidence, whilst having a load of fun.

Afterwards, most groups will head to a nearby pub or onsite clubhouse to grab a drink, get to know the group better & have a few laughs.

What to expect

Tasters are beginner sessions, no experience is necessary, all levels of fitness are welcome. We ask all participants in the Taster Session to arrive 15 minutes before the start time. On arrival at the venue, you will be greeted by one of our friendly and easy to spot staff, wearing red TTR branded kit, who will give you a pair of Tag Rugby shorts to borrow

Each Taster Session will start with an introduction, a briefing on the basic rules and skills of the game, followed by some fun practice drills. This will progress into a game and participants having an opportunity to play their first game of Tag Rugby! All sessions will be taken by an experienced, friendly, and welcoming Try Tag Rugby member of staff, referee or coach who will be able to answer any Tag Rugby specific questions that you may have.

After the session there will be a post-match social at a nearby partner pub.

What do I bring?

All you need to bring is some comfortable sportswear, water bottle & a fun attitude! All equipment is provided including balls, tags and the Tag Rugby shorts needed to play the game.

Please note – Boots with metal studs are not allowed to be worn.

What if I can’t attend a Taster or none are available?

Don’t worry if you can’t attend a Taster Session, you don’t need to have been to one in order to play in one of our leagues. Lots of people sign up to our leagues and events without having played before. All our leagues and events have a friendly member of staff who will meet you on your first time and be able to give you a briefing on the basic rules as well as some tips on how to start playing.

Our staff & refs are also on hand throughout the season should you have any further queries or want any further help or advice!

At times when there are no Taster Sessions open for registration or if there’s not one suitable for you, we can potentially arrange a trial game for you in a league. Please contact the organiser of your local league for more information.

Private Group Taster Sessions

If you have a group of 10 or more people and you can’t attend one of the scheduled Taster Sessions, we would be happy to organise a private Taster Session at a venue, time and location that works. Please contact your local region for more information.
