THIS summer is Tag Rugby's 6th season at Greystones Rugby Club .
Tag rugby in Greystones like all rugby in Greystones is a very social affair. Players range in age from 16 to 60 and of course it's mixed too, with many girls becoming pivotal players on each team. Tag rugby is also good experience for the younger players of the club who learn a lot of match strategy in a safe non contact environment from the older more experienced players.
Youthful exuberance is great on a team but it can be awful daft at times too so the experience should see them in good stead. It is also great to see that tag rugby in the club is filtering down to the much younger in the club with the Youth Section running a competition for 13 to 17 year olds during the summer. So for boys and girls, men and women there is a tag rugby competition suited for you.
Most Tag evenings ended with the customary drink in the bar (lucozade for the U18's of course) to discuss the days games.
However, some organised events were also had with outdoor barbeques, live music, pizza and late night sing alongs and a great time had by all and it is great to see the club vibrant during the summer months
Tag rugby has opened up the club to a whole new range of people that would not normally be associated with a rugby club.
This is part of the ethos of Greystones RFC to be welcoming to all and we pride ourselves on it. Every year sees some people who've never picked up a rugby ball in their lives thoroughly enjoying all that the game of rugby has to offer.
We hope to see more of you at Tag Rugby next summer and bring your friends too and if you are unsure of it we run introductory nights leading up to the start of the league and we run training sessions before and during the league to help those that don't normally play the game to get to grips with the odd shaped ball.
If you would be interested in entering a team of 12, or partaking as an individual player please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can see more information on www.greystonesrfc.ie under the tag tab, Greystones summer tag.
