This week sees the touch Clapham Common Shootout semis and finals take place for the Monday and Wednesday leagues.
The Spring Leagues are played in a slightly different format of 2 x 20 minute games. Another big thing happening this week is the start of our O2Touch Spring League at Regents Park which is our biggest venue of touch in London.
We look forward to the rest of the leagues starting next week.
Going down under for Touch World Cup
There are lots of our players and referees from our various leagues heading to the Touch World Cup in Australia this week and we want to wish them well and look forward to cheering them on as well as watching on the YouTube channel dedicated to bringing us the games.
Ladies Active Touch Team are looking to win their second season in a row at the Canary Wharf League.
The ladies play in a mixed active touch league which is an indoor version of touch mixed with a few other sports and take on the guys in every aspect of the game. The men might have more pace, but with clever tactics and fantastic skills shown by the ladies they definitely give the mixed teams a run for their money.
The final takes place on Monday 20 April and they are playing their rivals of last season’s final, The Artful Dodgers.
Touch quote of the week
The quote of the week comes from the organiser of LSEG who plays in the Active Touch League in Canary Wharf.
“We didn’t quite know what Active was all about, and on our first night we tried our best to learn the rules and catch onto the game. Active took us by surprise as we didn’t except it to be such a fast-paced game but we absolutely love it now and we’ll definitely be back for another season!”
If you would like to sign up either as an individual or a team then you can send us an email to [email protected] or have a look on our website, www.in2touch.com/uk for more information about the leagues in London.
There is still time to get your teams into the Spring Season and what a way to spend an evening playing touch and socialising!
