IRFU Volkswagen Beach Tag returns to Portstewart this Saturday then Strandhill in July
Tag teams again have two great choices of locations to unwind in, hit the shores and enjoy a weekend away with a day's tag thrown into the mix.
This Saturday, June 14th, the jewel of the north coast, Portstewart Strand will host the day's events and then two weeks later on Saturday, July 5th* in Culleenamore Strand, Strandhill, County Sligo there will be another event which will be co-hosted by Sligo RFC.
Beach Tag is exactly as it sounds - Tag rugby played on a beach, but by 5 players in a mixed team, as opposed to 7 in regular tag. This team must field at least TWO female players.
The entire competition takes place in one day, and runs from around midday until later afternoon, depending on the tides that day.
Signing up a team only costs €179 per team. At only €17 per player for the day, this is great value which cannot be beaten anywhere else.
Places are limited and subject to availability so to ensure your team's place, please register on www.irfutag.ie.
