Taking the pitches this week, 4 of our 7 across London will be battling out in the semi-finals stages of the competition. With some old rivals competing again – and some new blood coming through the ranks with gold in sight, these games will no doubt showcase the skill and stamina we have on call in our London leagues.

Putney/Wandsworth, Clapham Common, Clapham/Wandsworth Common and Regents Park teams will come with game faces on, and ready to dive, run, and pass! Semi-finals for Richmond, Surrey Quays and Hyde Park will be the following week. With the Spring season coming to an end, this is no way means the end of fun! Along with the Summer league (which starts in only a few weeks!) – we have the awesome one day competition at the London 10’s Festival.

Following the successful 2012 London 10’s event with 20 Rugby teams and 20 Touch teams participating, we are very pleased to announce the 2014 event will be held on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th July at Ilford RFC in East London (The Mixed social touch event will be held on Sunday the 27th July).
The mixed social touch teams will play in a one-day competition on the Sunday, but are welcome to take part in the Saturday evening festivities and camping opportunities. This competition will bring together mixed social teams from across the UK to fight it out to be crowned champions.

The London 10’s showcases all elements of Rugby Union and Touch Rugby – bringing all the best aspects both on and off field. Not only will the two day event display the skill and talent that is evident in this fine capital, but live music, bars and entertainment will also be on offer
2014 sees the London 10’s and Touch Festival join forces with the fantastic FRN 7’s Tournament which will see Men’s and Women’s 7’s, Men’s Opens and Social 10’s all on Saturday 26th July and then the highlight of the event will be the 16 team mixed Touch Competition on Sunday 27th July.

Entry is open to any teams that wish to enter – but remember, first come, first served! So make sure to sign up and register for the fun filled weekend! Team entry will cost £180 – which not only covers entry, but tickets to the day’s activities and festivities, but the entertainment as well.
(Please note: All players in the squad must be over the age of 17 to participate in the competition.

Not only is playing in a one day competition a fun and exciting challenge for you and your teammates, it is also a way to meet new friends and discover the many ways in which the game of Touch can be played.
As we all know – touch competitions are as much about the games that day as they are about the social aspect – so to avoid massive FOMO, sign up now!
There will be plenty to keep the kids and adults entertained with activities all throughout the day. Activities for kids include a bouncy castle, rodeo bull ride, a Cactus Hoopla game, a giant Connect 4 and other rides, as well as a junior rugby demonstration match. This should get kids of all ages involved in the activities!

There will be plenty of entertainment for the adults as well with a rodeo bull ride and performances from the crystal palace cheerleaders.
Did we mention that all of this is included in the price of your entry?
