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.
While there are opportunities to play Touch competitively, the O2 Touch social leagues and events are played with the main focus of having fun with friends, colleagues, family and are a great way to meet new people in your local area.
Whether you are a complete beginner or haven’t played for some time, men and women and of all ages are all welcome.
