Try Tag Rugby to launch in Oxford

Try Tag Rugby to launch in Oxford

Try Tag Rugby, the Rugby Football League's Tag Rugby League partner, is set to further continue its expansion, with a new league set to start in Oxford at the end of this month.

The league will be operated as part of a new Try Tag Rugby Thames Valley Franchise which will also include the existing Try Tag Rugby League in Reading.

Try Tag Rugby, the Rugby Football League’s (RFL) Tag Rugby League partner, is the UK delegate to the International Tag Federation (ITF) and currently operates in London, Bristol, Coventry & Warwickshire, Manchester, the Thames Valley, Wigan and Yorkshire. The Oxford League is one of four new areas that Try Tag Rugby is launching during 2019, with new Leagues also starting in Leamington Spa, Solihull and Wigan this year as Try Tag Rugby looks to further expand around the UK.

Tag Rugby League is a fun and exciting non-contact social sport suitable for adults; no previous rugby experience is necessary; it’s a sport that can be enjoyed by beginners and experienced players alike.

Try Tag Rugby will launch a mixed league in Oxford on Wednesday 29th May at Oxford RFC (OX2 0NA). Tag Rugby League is a very social sport and a great way to meet new people as well as a chance to meet up with existing friends.  There will be a weekly post-match social, where players come together to enjoy a drink with their team mates and opposition.

For those wanting to give it a try before signing up for the league, Try Tag Rugby will be holding Free Taster Sessions on the grass pitches at Oxford RFC on Wednesday 15th May and Wednesday 22nd May, with both starting at 7pm.
