Tag, you’re it!!

World Chase Tag was formed in 2011 by brothers Christian and Damien Devaux, after a game of Tag between Christian and his son, Orlando, in their back garden.  

 The guys set to work on designing the ultimate course dimensions & scale of obstacles in order to perfectly balance the chase between the Evader & Tagger.   This playing arena is known as The Quad.

 The Devaux Brothers staged extensive test sessions to experiment with the effect of changing small elements of each Quad design to measure how it impacted an athlete’s ability to evade a tag.  In doing so they were able to develop an ‘EQ’ calculation which, by adding or removing certain elements of any Quad design, could tweak the level of difficulty.   This has enabled them to create multiple Quad designs at a variety of sizes which can be adapted easily to switch between a professional competition standard, or to accommodate lesser abilities of amateurs & children while still delivering an evenly balanced chase.
