Mancunians can look forward to more growth when they launch a series of Tag Rugby competitions at their Chorlton home next Month.
We have formed a partnership with ‘Try Tag Rugby’ to run an eight week long Tag Rugby League, which will feature up to eight mixed gender teams playing games on one evening, finishing with a social event at the Mancunians’ clubhouse. Try Tag Rugby is a rapidly growing organisation that is recognised internationally, being the official UK delegates of the European Tag Federation and the International Tag Federation.
Tag Rugby is a fun and social sport for men and women that gives people the opportunity to get fit, have fun and meet loads of new people. Tag Rugby is a 7 aside minimal contact version of Rugby in which each player wears shorts with Velcro patches with two tags attached to them.
The mode of play is similar to Touch Rugby with attacking players attempting to dodge, evade and pass a rugby ball while defenders attempt to prevent them scoring by ‘tagging’ – pulling a Velcro attached tag from the ball carrier.
Ball movement and back line play is actively encouraged, the ball is allowed to touch the ground and some kicking is allowed and once a player is ‘tagged’ a play the ball takes place and the game continues.
Tag Rugby is a fun, exciting game and a great way to keep fit! Its ideal for those with busy lives; matches last 40 minutes, there’s no training and games will take place at Mancunians’ conveniently placed base at Hough End, Chorlton, South Manchester. Within walking distance of three tram stations, several bus routes and with ample car parking, Mancunians is the perfect venue.
Tagging instead of tackling makes it a game suitable for players of all shapes, size, speed and skill level.
All standards are welcome whether you are a beginner or experienced player. If you haven’t played before, please don’t worry whether you will be any good, its an easy game to learn to play. We will have a friendly competition supervisor to explain the rules at every session and they will also be on hand each week to give tips and advice if wanted. You don’t need to have played Rugby before or to even have an interest in it in order to play Tag Rugby!
Tag Rugby is a very social sport and a great way to spend time with existing friends and to meet new people. Our venue has an onsite bar for players to have a drink and some food with their team mates and opposition after the games. We will also be organising regular social events and one day festivals with massive after parties throughout the year! Games will take place on a Tuesday evening and registrations will be open in the next couple of weeks.
