Work off the Christmas wobble by joining a touch rugby team

What a year it has been for all the players and the game of Touch in London


The Sunday Individuals Team joined in on the festive spirit for their final game of the season, sporting traditional Christmas attire.

2014 was a fantastic year for Touch in all the social and competitive leagues and competitions. O2 Touch is also growing quickly and has gotten many clubs interested in playing touch, gaining new touch ambassadors coming through all the time. With so many new players learning the game of touch it is always good to have some established leagues to help the process like we do in London.

02 Touch

There are seven different venues around London which have leagues running each night of the week from April through to
August, which is the peak Spring and Summer Leagues.

There will be a Winter League that starts in early February on Sundays from 12 pm – 3 pm at Clapham Common and it has Men’s, Ladies and Mixed divisions. This is a social league where teams play for eight weeks every Sunday and you could either enter your own team or as an individual and we can put you into a team for the whole season.

There is also an Active Touch league running from the middle of January at two different locations, the first venue is at Canary Wharf on Mondays from 6:45 pm – 7:45 pm and the other is at The Wandle Recreation Centre in Wandsworth on both Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm.

Hot Custard

Active Touch is an indoor game that is played with four team members, two ladies and two men for 30 minutes non-stop. It is a fast-paced, skillful game that is a cross between touch, football, netball, ultimate Frisbee and a few other sports.

With a brand new year and many exciting touch competitions, leagues and parties to look forward to everyone is getting their teams together and making sure to get a spot in the upcoming leagues of 2015.
