Add to calendar

Touch is a mixed sport with players from 14 upwards competing together. There is no tackling, just touches. Each team has six players with rolling substitutes. Teams have six touches to score a try.

It is one of the few sports where men an women compete on the same team which makes it great fun and ideal for couples, and families.
We coach through getting everyone playing and enjoying - our sessions are highly welcoming, inclusive and popular. We actively encourage all comers especially newcomers to give it a go.
