TagFest – Wigan

The inaugural TagFest Wigan has now graced our calendars and joins the 2020 TagFest Series. However, you want to be quick as there is more to this tournament than meets the eye (or should I say pie).  Did you know: Wigan is home to the World Pie Eating Championships. Not only that, but in 2016, local residents sent the first ever pie in to space.  So obviously, TagFest Wigan will celebrate it’s pie eating roots by hosting its own Pie Eating Competition. That’s right, Tag & Pies….. So if that’s not enough to get your team registered, tickets booked and appetites at the ready – there will be a cracking after-party as well: Inflatables, Candy Floss and better still, you can get to Wigan from London in two hours….. (Click on image to enlarge) FORMAT (7-a-side) will have a guaranteed game time of 90 minutes Regular Try Tag Rugby Rules apply Maximum of 12 players per squad, minimum 3 female on the pitch at any one time Teams will be seeded and graded based on submitted squad lists prior to the tournament. Squad lists must be complete by Sunday 19th July at the very latest. Pools will be created which in turn will break out into Cup, Plate and Bowl etc competitions so there is always something to play for.  If your usual team can’t play or you just fancy a bit of a change, don’t worry, you can always register for the tournament as an individual and we will assign you to a new team or we can build a team around you on request.
