Tag Rugby action at Adams Park

On Saturday 18th February we welcomed 56 young players to Adams Park for a display of Tag Rugby on our pitch during the half-time of our Aviva Premiership Rugby fixture against Exeter Chiefs. Community Partner Clubs Aylesbury RFC and Marlow RUFC provided U7s and U8s players for our Match Day Tag Rugby Challenge.

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.

When the teams arrived at Adams Park Stadium they each had a team photograph on the pitch with Sting and London Wasps players players Victor Gresev, Vladislav Korshunov and Heinz Koll.

After the Tag Challenge, Aylesbury RFC U7s Coach Simon Winstone told wasps.co.uk, "Just wanted to thank you very much for arranging the Wasps Tag Challenge on Saturday. Despite the rain, everyone had a great time - all the children were still talking about it at rugby on Sunday. It was a great experience for them all!"
