How to play   

Touch rugby is a fun and friendly low-contact sport. No grappling or tackling is allowed – instead, you’ll use a two-handed touch on your opponent’s body or clothing to get the ball off them.  

You’ll then have to pass the ball backwards to your teammates and try to get it over the touchline to score a try. Each try will be worth one point.  

How to get involved  

If you’re interested in signing up as a team, you can book either Online or by calling 01202965012 The league costs £200 per squad of up to ten players.

**You can spread the cost amoungst the team, meaning only £20pp or maybe even do it through work and encourage your employer to cover the cost as a great opportunity to support team building and staff wellbeing.

Matches take place at Chapel Gate, located next to Bournemouth Airport. There is free parking available on site.
