3. Hong Kong Tag Rugby Session

Venue: Happy Valley Pitch 6

1 Sports Road, Happy Valley

Admission: $30 (FREE for first-timers) 

 

Fancy giving rugby a try without the risk getting battered by a 120kg forward?

 

Give Tag Rugby a go - a sport where speed and agility matters more than physicality and raw strength, making it perfectly suited for lads and ladies of all abilities.

 

Bring along an extra $30 to rent a pair or tag shorts, which are specially made so you can attach tags on them that when removed by an opponent, counts as a tackle.

 

Or fork out $150 to snag yourself a pair outright, when you realise there's simply no better way to spend your Sunday evenings.

This one's specifically for beginners, although there are regular league fixtures for those who would much prefer to indulge their competitive streak.
