ITS BACK- CELEBRATE JUBILEE WEEKEND WITH TAG RUGBY LEAGUE!
The Rochdale International Tag Festival is now seeking teams for entry into the 4th Annual Tournament!
This years festival will take place at Firgrove, the home of Rochdale Swarm and Rochdale Cobras, on Saturday 2nd June, and is open to teams of males and females aged 14+.
Tag Rugby League is a non contact version of the sport which uses velcro tags rather than tackling. The game is 7 a side, and teams should have 2 females on the pitch at all (tries by females count double!).
Last year 27 teams from all corners of the UK, France as well as anti-podean exile teams took part in the festival which caters for competive, social and beginner teams alike!
Emily Wynn, from organisers Rochdale Swarm, commented: 'The Tag festival is the first date in alot of teams diaries each year. It is a fantastic social event, with competitive opportunities aimed at every level. This year we have changed tact a little and want to make a real event of the day. We will have a bar available as well as activities for the kids to come and try out. We have lowered the entry age to 14, which will mean alot of younger players can take to the field alongside there mums, dads and future open age team mates. We are actively looking for 'lads and dads' teams, as well as entries from combined 'womens and girls' teams. For the more competitive, open age teams can have a run out against experienced tag/touch players, as the North West Mens league has a free date that weekend. Im getting excited already!'
Costs this year id just £5 per person, which includes festival entry, post festival food and access to the now infamous post festival party, being held this year at the Flying Horse Hotel, Rochdale.
