O2 Touch Spring has Sprung and it’s time to run

With Spring no longer ‘just around the corner’, it is once again time to dust off those boots, pull out the team jersey and get set for another season that is already bursting at the seams with action.


Touch Training 1

Monday the 28th April 2014 saw the parks and pitches across this fair English capital adorned by guys and girls alike, all ready to show the other teams what they are made of.

Whether you’re a shiny new player, or well-seasoned – our Spring league of 2014 is set to be our best one yet! Both at Clapham Common and Regents Park, the past week has seen amazing turnouts for our beginners coaching sessions. What was even better to see was that the girls almost outnumbered the guys! (You go girls!). Getting more women involved is fantastic, as Touch is one of the only sports where Men and Women play alongside each other at Elite levels. It was awesome to see the ease that all the beginners picked up the basic skills with.

Clapham Common leagues (once again being greedy), filled up in no time at all, Regents Park and Clapham/Wandsworth only just have room for dessert & Hyde Park, Putney/Wandsworth, Surrey Quays and Richmond could all go back for seconds. (but with spaces filling up quickly, get in before you miss out!)

With many familiar teams, but also quite a big number of new ones, the next 8 weeks of competition will be a fierce one! Will the 2013 winners maintain their titles with ease, or, will they taste the sharp end of defeat against some new competition?

With numbers for our Superleague competition also being at an all-time high – make sure to watch this space (or follow all the happenings on our Facebook page), for the battle royale about to unfold. The 10 best Mixed teams as well as the 6 best Ladies & Men’s teams from all across London competing to be titled O2 Touch London Super League champs, these games will surely showcase some amazing skillsets from our players.
