Tag rugby added this year in FREE sporting fun and competition

By Pete Woodhouse

The Rural Community Games is now in its third successful year, and organisers are still looking for more villages to sign up.

Tag Rugby is added this year, but the theme stays the same. These events are all totally FREE for the village to come together with friends and neighbours for a bit of sporting fun and competition.

There will be five separate events, any village can enter a team for just one event or all five. At each event there will be a village winner and a runner-up. The winners will receive medals. There is also an overall village competition, so each individual win counts.
