In 2019, the International Tag Federation awarded the (then) 2021 ITF Tag World Cup to Ireland. All previous tag world cups had taken place in the Southern Hemisphere, so this represented a big change. After two COVID-related postponements, our team is very excited to welcome you to Ireland. Irish people are proud of the Céad Mile Fáilte they show to international guests – literally, one hundred thousand welcomes!

​The tournament takes place at the magnificent University of Limerick, where all players, staff, referees, and even supporters will be accommodated in self-catering accommodation within walking distance of the playing fields. The open ceremony takes place on Wednesday 2nd August, and finals on Saturday 5th. What happens between them is over to you!
