What is Touch?

A great way to improve your fitness and have fun whether you're a guy or girl, 14 or 80, a beginner or seasoned player. Touch Rugby or TOUCH, as it is known, is a minimal contact sport that is played worldwide by men, women and children of all ages. The game emphasizes running, agility and ball handling skills such as passing and catching. Looking something similar to Rugby, without the tackling, scrumming, kicking and the like, the aim of the game is to score tries. Played on a flat surface, half the size of a conventional sports field, Touch rugby is “The Game taking the World by Storm”. The official governing body of the sport is the Federation of International TOUCH, and in England the England Touch Association.
