Family Touch Rugby
Introducing family touch rugby….
Family touch rugby FAQ’s:
I haven't played rugby before, is it for me?
This is touch rugby – no tackling – and is about evasion, running, passing & catching a ball and teamwork. The rules are very simple (a modification of what our under 7’s play) so are quick to pick up. If you can run and throw & catch a ball, you can play touch rugby!
What are the team sizes?
We are looking at up to 10 players in a team, with between 5 and 7 on the pitch at any one time. we will adapt the team sizes / players numbers based on what happens on the night.
Can mums and daughters play?
Absolutely! – all ages, genders and abilities are welcome.
Are there any age restrictions?
Anyone from U7 upward can play – as we want to make this an inclusive and fun event. We may need to have teams with very young players playing each other, from a safety perspective, but we will see how things play out on the night.
We have a large family can we put in a famiy team?
Yes, of up to 10 players.
There are only 3 or 4 of us, what happens to us?
We will put you together with others to make up a team of 10.
I am coming on my own/with a friend, what happens to me/us?
We will put you with others to make up a team of 10.
Are there a maximum number of teams?
We are looking at a maximum of 15 teams of 10 players. In that case, we will have 3 teams playing a round robin on the pitches available. Any more teams than that and we won’t be able to provide enough playing opportunity each night.
What do I wear?
Shorts, t-shirts and trainers are ideal. To save the pitch surface, we would prefer it if you didn’t wear moulded stud football/rugby boots.
Do I need a mouth guard?
No, this is touch rugby, not contact rugby.
Is there a fee payable?
No – there is no fee to play our family touch, we are organising this to help keep people fit and to have fun.
