MIXED SOCIAL TAG
Social Tag is the most popular in the country and perfect for rookie players
new to the game and teams as interested in what happens off the pitch, as what
materialises on it!!!
Games are 7 a side with a maximum of 4 guys on the pitch at all times. You can
have up to 7 subs on the sideline so a maximum of 14 players in your squad each
night. Matches are 40 minutes long with 2 x 20 min halves and 5 mins for half
time. Check out the Basic Laws for Mixed Social Tag below.
The vast majority of our Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter Leagues are Mixed
Social Tag Leagues - so unless the league name states "Premiership",
"Men's Only", "Women's Only" or "Over 30s", you
are signing up to a Mixed Social Tag League!
NB: If you only play Mixed Social Tag,
you will not be eligible
to play Representative Tag for your Region or Ireland

Basic Laws for Mixed Social Tag
Here are a list of our venues around the country where we run Mixed Social Tag
Dublin, we run leagues year round on a number of superb all-weather pitches, so
games get played in rain, hail, sleet and sunshine! For many of our Spring
& Summer Leagues, we move onto grass, which is brilliant to run on and
lends itself to some spectacular defensive diving tags!
Dublin - Southside
Wanderers Hockey Club, Ballsbridge
Dublin - Northside
Road Sports Complex, D3
Crescent RFC, home to the world's largest tag festival, the Pig n Porter in
July, is arguably the most social venue in the country! With Summer and Autumn
Leagues on grass in the club, you are sure to be rocking both on and off the
pitch! Then, during the off-season, we play on the fantastic all-weather
pitches in UL - so there is lots of tag in Limerick throughout the year.
Con FC is our venue in Cork, where we run Spring, Summer and Autumn Leagues on
grass. With its superb location, great facilities and very social atmosphere,
it is one of the best venues in the country!
is one of our fastest growing tag regions, where we now have 3 venues running
tag in NUIM Barnhall RFC, Naas Sports Centre and North Kildare RFC. During
the summer, games are played on grass in each venue, while during the Spring,
we use the all-weather hockey pitch in Naas - ideal for players looking to get
into tag mode before the busy summer season!
Barnhall RFC, Celbridge
Kildare RFC, Kilcock
We use St Mary's College, located in
the heart of Galway, for our Spring and Summer Leagues. As well as being within
