London Touch Rugby update: Clapham Common Sunday Winter Touch is back

Touch Leagues in London has kicked off for 2015 at one of the most popular venues, Clapham Common.


Sunday 15 February saw the start of our In2Touch Winter Sunday League and the blue skies had returned for a perfectly crisp day of sizzling, fast paced touch at Clapham.

It was great to see so many familiar faces from the Mixed, Ladies and Mens teams returning for 2015 Sunday touch after a brief Christmas break and an action-packed year of touch in 2014. Good luck to all our league players who are in preparation for the 2015 Touch World Cup down under in Coffs Harbour, Australia in April. The England Mixed Open team are practising down at Clapham Common before the league begins and then they will play in the league to get some more game time.

Back to our first week on Pitch 1, Chilli’s and Hot Custard Jagermaestros locked horns in a game that has set the mark for the rest of the season of the league. Great set-plays and team moves from both teams were the order of the day with a high level of touch on display and England Internationals representing both teams. A great try eventually gave Hot Custard the two point lead for a 6 – 4 victory.

On pitch 2 the usually brightly cladded Sparky the Wonderdog fought a battle royale against Sunday Individuals (a brand new team where individuals sign up on our website and get placed in this team for the season), and came out on top, 7 – 4.

There are plenty of upcoming leagues to get involved in, such as the Late Winter Active Touch Season, which is an indoor sport and is a mix between Touch, Netball, Ultimate Frisbee and Football.

You can also get involved in our short four week league in Clapham Common, the April Shootout League. There are also our Spring and Summer leagues taking place at 7 different venues across London on Mondays – Thursdays from 19:00 – 21:00.
