  • Please note these important changes regarding the Marjon 2011 tag rugby event.  Change of date: The date has now been confirmed as Friday 27th May. All bookings this year will be done online via the Sir John Hunt School Sports Partnership Website. Information regarding how to book will be sent to schools in early January. This should alleviate the numerous phone calls claiming the entry is lost in the post! Please diary entering by end of January as the entry for the competition will close end of February and places will fill up fast. The competition this year will be reduced in size to accommodate 48 rather than the normal 72 teams. This is due to building work occurring at Marjons which will limit the amount of pitches we are able to operate. We will therefore only be opening the competition to Plymouth schools as West Devon will be offered their own competition through Ivybridge. All schools irrespective of their size will be entered into the same competition (the standard was similar in both the major and minor schools competitions last year). The highest ranking 4 will represent Plymouth in the Devon finals.
