Formerly recognised as the Yorkshire Tag Rugby Championships, we are excited to share this event is now part of the UK wide TagFest series.
Inviting players and teams of all standards from across the UK, TagFest Yorkshire will enjoy a full day of Tag Rugby before retiring to the clubhouse for pizza, drinks, DJ and a great social. BUT, it won’t stop there – at 22:30, jump in a cab and take the party to Manahatta, 11 Merrion St, Leeds where you can carry on until the early hours of the morning (2am). With this event being the biggest day out for Yorkshire teams, last year also attracted a significant number of teams from London and beyond. Leeds offers a fantastic night life, financially viable accommodation and if you think you can handle it, the “Otley Run” pub crawl on the Sunday – so make a proper weekend of it without burning a hole in your pocket.
HOW FAST, HOW FANCY
Half way through the day, each team will be invited to nominate their fastest male and fastest female in their squad who will in turn compete for the coveted title of ‘Fastest Tagger in Yorkshire’ – A very prestigious title… If your team is more skill than speed, then get in the spirit with fancy dress with this year’s theme being ‘RETRO’. Of course, if you are crowned as the ‘Fastest Tagger in Yorkshire’ and you do so whilst in RETRO fancy dress – it’s fair to say you have kudos and bragging rights for the entire year ahead, you might even be able to demand a few drinks off your team mates in the clubhouse afterwards.
Prizes will be awarded for Best Player of the Tournament (male and female), Best Player of the Cup Final (male & female) along with best ‘Fancy Dress’ team and ‘Fastest Tagger’ (male & female).
With a maximum capacity of 40 teams, entry to this tournament will sell out.
- (7-a-side) will have a guaranteed game time of 90 minutes

- Teams will be seeded and graded based on submitted squad lists prior to the tournament.

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.
Hosted in a semi rural setting with stunning views of the rolling Yorkshire hills and valleys, just over 15 minutes from Leeds City Centre, the venue is ideally situated between Leeds and Bradford, close to the Leeds Outer Ring Road and five miles from Leeds and Bradford Airport with easy access to the motorway network.
You will need to order your pizza which can be delivered directly to the clubhouse, usually taking about 30 minutes. Bobby, Tournament Director will be on hand with plenty of menus for you to get dialling straight after you have finished and prize giving has drawn to a close. Try Tag Rugby will endeavour to secure onsite vendors as well, creating a broader choice for all the players.
Ladies and Gents showers and toilet facilities are available throughout the day for all players and their supporters/spectators. Limited car parking facilities are available onsite but on-street parking and other car parks are also available in the nearby area.
