3,000 attend Primary School Tag Festival at CAP

24th May 2018

More than 3,000 children attended Cardiff Arms Park this week to take part in the annual Cardiff Blues Primary School Tag Rugby Festival.

Schools from the length and breadth of the region descended on the Welsh capital for the event, which was held over three days and sponsored by Sphere Solutions.
Pupils not only had the opportunity to play against rival schools but were able to have photos with the European Challenge Cup and meet Cardiff Blues stars.
The likes of Alex Cuthbert, Macauley Cook and Matthew Rees were among the players in attendance throughout another hugely successful week.
Cardiff Blues Community Manager Nadine Griffiths said: “The Tag Rugby Festival is always a highlight of the Cardiff Blues Community calendar and once again it didn’t disappoint.
“It was a brilliant three days, engaging with schools from every single unitary authority in our region (Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, RCT, Merthyr and Powys) in great weather.
“The Tag Festival is a great way to get children playing rugby, whether they already play or are a newcomer, and the chance to play at Cardiff Arms Park makes it a truly memorable experience.
“Allowing the children the opportunity to see and hold the European Challenge Cup, recently won in Bilbao, made it extra special.
“Our thanks go to Sphere Solutions for kindly sponsoring the festival and also all of the Cardiff Blues Community team, the WRU community coaches and volunteers for their hard work.”
Cardiff Blues will be at the Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival on Sunday, where you can have your own photo taken with the Challenge Cup.
The Community team will be back in action next week with the return of the popular half-term kids camps, which are being run at Cardiff Arms Park and Christ College Brecon.
