Tag Rugby Festival for young people

Wooden Spoon Ulster will be running a Tag Rugby Festival for young people with a learning disability at Ballyclare Rugby Football Club in Co. Antrim

Date: June 8th 2019
Venue: Ballyclare Rugby Football Club, Co Antrim

Tag rugby is a non-contact version of the sport. A tackle is made by pulling a tag from an opponent, there are no scrums or line outs and the games are restarted by a simple pass from the ground. Tries are scored in the normal way.

Clare Hares is the disability section of Ballyclare RFC and is sponsored by WJ Blair, Green Thumb and Voy Vets.

There will be two age categories – under 15-years-old and over 15-years-old. There is no upper age limit. Each age group is further divided into two sections based on degree of learning disability.

This fundraising event is being held in aid of Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby
