Touch Rugby is a fast moving minimal contact evasive game that is played throughout the world by men and women of all ages and skill levels. All you need is a rugby ball, a space to play and a group of friends. The game is similar to rugby but without the tackling, scrumming, rucking, mauling, lineouts and kicking. This fast, simple and exciting game promotes the fundamental skills of running, handling, evasion and support play, whilst developing basis principles of attack and defence, without the fear of getting hurt.
Touch Rugby is suitable for both beginners and experienced players. You can play in either men’s, women’s or mixed divisions. Touch Rugby is a minimal contact recreational sport that is about playing the game on the field and also the social atmosphere afterwards. Touch Rugby is a fun game for the local park or even the beach, it is easy to learn and a great way to get in shape.
Eccles Touch Rugby is an official RFU/O2 Touch Centre. Games are played throughout the year on Thursday evenings, 19.00-21.00. For more information please contact Mark Greenhalgh or visit our facebook page (will work without a facebook account).
