Games are 7 a side where you must have at least 3 girls on the pitch at all times. You can have up to an additional 7 subs on the sideline (so maximum squads of 14) and can swap them on and off as many times as you like over the course of a normal 40 minute game (2 x 20 min halves).
No Experience Required!
You don’t need any rugby experience as the game is all about running and passing where agility, speed and hand-eye co-ordination are the key skills. It is a soft contact sport, similar to basketball - so intentional impact, diving tackles and deliberate contact are forbidden and strictly penalised by our officials. Tag compliments a wide range of other sports, from soccer to Gaelic football and from hockey to tennis.
Each year, we have over 10,000 tag players in our leagues in 20+ venues all around the country with our Spring (usually 6 weeks from March to May) and Summer Leagues (usually 9 weeks from May to July) the most popular.
Your team plays one match per week on the same night and in the same venue. Kick off times are often 18:30, 19:15, 20:00 and 20:45... and your team will be playing at one of these times every week. So you will have some early games and some late matches.. Many venues take place on multiple nights - so you can choose the evening that suits you best.
The great thing about Tag is that it doesn’t end at the final whistle! Our Après-Tag Social Nights are legendary and a great place to mix with and meet new people. What better way to celebrate your victory / drown your sorrows after defeat than dropping into the bar for a drink with your team mates to analyse everyone's performance! So you are guaranteed to have a ball both on - and off - the pitch!
