Match Day Tag Rugby Challenge vs Northampton Saints

We welcomed 56 young Tag Rugby players from 3 Community Partner Clubs to Adams Park Stadium on Sunday

On Sunday 6th November we were delighted to welcome 8 Tag Rugby teams to Adams Park Stadium to perform a display of their Tag Rugby skills in front of an appreciative 8,000 crowd during the half-time of London Wasps v Northampton Saints.

What is Tag Rugby?
Tag Rugby is a game played by teams of seven players. Each player wears a belt that has two velcro tags attached to it. The defenders have to pull one of the velcro tags from the ball-carrying attacking player, to force the player to pass the ball. The game is fast and exciting and develops the players’ agility, balance & coordination while focusing on the FUNdamental core skills of non-contact rugby.

This week's teams were from:

  • Maidenhead RFC U7s vs Witney RFC U7s
  • Maidenhead RFC U7s vs Witney RFC U7s
  • Amersham & Chiltern RFC U8s vs Witney RFC U8s
  • Amersham & Chiltern RFC U8s vs Witney RFC U8s

Before their demonstration matches, each team was invited to have a team photograph with London Wasps hooker Steve Thompson and full back Jack Wallace.

After the Tag Challenge, London Wasps Community Rugby Coach Ben Smiley told wasps.co.uk: "We were delighted to welcome a total of 56 young Tag Rugby players from 3 of our Community Partner Clubs to Adams Park Stadium on Sunday. Hopefully their experience in playing and watching rugby in a professional stadium environment has created a host of new London Wasps supporters, and maybe even motivated some future professional rugby players."

The London Wasps Matchday Tag Rugby Challenge has been revamped for this coming season. For more details click here, or contact the London Wasps Community Team on 01494 531122.
