Touch rugby is a rapidly growing international sport which is fast-paced, strategic and exhilarating. Touch is a mixed inclusive sport for all ages and abilities, entering regular regional and national (BUCS) tournaments throughout the year! We embrace quite a chilled atmosphere but aren't afraid to turn up the heat when we head to competitions. Not only will it get you fit, it's a great way to socialise through our regular social events.
Our weekly training sessions are on the Rugby Grids at Wide Lane Sports Ground, every Tuesday and Thursday from 18:00 - 20:00 and weekly match days on Saturdays from 14:00 - 16:00. Don't worry, you do not have to come to all the sessions, but we hope you do. Come along and give it a try! In addition to buying a club membership through SUSU, you will need a Sports and Wellbeing membership (£45) and if wishing to take part in the tournaments there's also a £5 fee for a student England Touch membership.
