Touch Rugby

Touch is a non contact sport that is fun to play and requires no previous rugby experience. The game emphasizes running, agility and ball handling skills and has none of the kicking, scrummaging, rucking or tackling that is found in both rugby league and union.

Touch is like no other sport:

  • It is cross gender allowing men and women to play alongside / against one another
  • It is highly active while being almost entirely injury-free
  • It provides an ideal team building opportunity
  • It is very sociable with interaction within and between competing teams
  • It is a fun and highly enjoyable way to spend an evening after work

To register a team, e-mail or telephone 0115 9161615.
