The forecast just got brighter for summer fun in Enniscorthy with the news that Bud Light Tag is returning to Enniscorthy RFC. The season begins with a ‘Try Tag for Free’ night this Thursday, May 20th from 7pm…
This is an open invitation for anyone to turn up and try Tag for Free and see for themselves how much fun the sport is and get a taster of the summer ahead at this great venue. Entry to these Open Nights is free-of-charge.
The league then kicks off on Thursday, 27th May and runs every Thursday night for 10 weeks. Building on the success of last year, the new season promises to be even bigger and better. With nearly 30 teams and over 300 players already signed up, the Ross Road is THE place to be on Thursday nights this summer.
Tag rugby really is a “Game of Two Halves” and off the field, this year’s Après Tag events in the clubhouse each night, promise to keep the crowds entertained. They include live shows from Bluemoose on June 10th and hypnotist Tony Black on May 27th. Last year’s successful comedy night returns on June 24th along with the annual Tag Table Quiz on June 3rd and much more. In addition the BBQ will be sizzling every night providing players with an opportunity to grab a burger whilst savouring the lively atmosphere.
Players, companies and clubs use tag rugby as a means of keeping fit, teambuilding or just as importantly, a great way to have fun both on and off the pitch. Enniscorthy RFC is the host of the only official I.R.F.U. Tag rugby programme in county Wexford this year and provides all-important elements such as great facilities, clubhouse and qualified referees.
Teams and individuals are being encouraged to sign up in advance of the League Kick off on May 27th. You can be part of the fun for less than a fiver per week! Remember Tag Rugby is a strictly non contact sport and No Rugby experience is required – you just need to be able to run & dodge! And more importantly it is open to Men & Women of all ages and fitness levels.
“Last year’s Bud Light Tag in Enniscorthy exceeded expectations to the point that we have expanded the number of pitches, allowing for more teams and players to take part,” said Enniscorthy RFC Venue Manager, David Ryan.
According to Enniscorthy RFC President, Charlie Kavanagh, “The social aspect of Tag rugby and its ability to attract players who may never have even set foot in a rugby club before has been not only a boost to the club in term of revenue, but also to the possibility of attracting new members be they associate, full, referees or players.”
Teams or individuals looking to take part in the Bud Light Tag league can register on the official website www.irfutag.ie or contact Enniscorthy RFC Venue Manager, David Ryan on 087-6277099. The registration process is now open on the website.
