Do you fancy trying something new this summer? Touch rugby, simply known as Touch, is growing in popularity across the country and Warwick Touch Club is inviting people to come and find out what the sport is all about.
Loosely based on rugby, Touch is a minimal contact game, played through the summer. Teams are 6-a-side, and have 6 ‘touches’ to score a touchdown.
The emphasis is on running and evasion, with no kicking, scrums or tackling.
The game’s rules allow for men and women to play on the same teams, making the sport very social and inclusive. The sport also attracts players from a variety of sports, and people who are looking to try something new.
Warwick Touch, based at Old Leamingtonians RFC, is inviting men and women to join them to find out more about the game.
Social training sessions are held on Monday evenings at OLRFC, Bericote Road, Blackdown from 6pm onwards. Players of all abilities are catered for, from complete newcomers to international players. Simply come along with sports kit and trainers (or moulded football boots- no metal studs), and join in the coaching and games.
The club is building up to the 8-week long Leamington O2 Touch League, which starts on May 12th.
The league will have a men’s and mixed division, with entries now being taken from companies, sports teams, friends and individuals. Teams will play a weekly 40-minute game per night and receive a set of playing shirts and a team ball. Games will start from 7pm onwards, with clubhouse facilities open every League night. Team entry is £200 (for a team of up to 12 players per night) or £25 as an individual player.
