Touch Rugby or TOUCH, as it is known, is a minimal contact sport that is played worldwide by men, women and children of all ages. The game emphasizes running, agility and ball handling skills such as passing and catching.

The RFU would like to invite a further 50 schools into the O2 touch program for 2016/17 season. Schools will receive support to develop their programme based upon a student leadership model. O2 touch is one of the fastest growing participation sports in the UK, and as schools expand their offer to students, the O2 touch rugby programme would be an excellent edition to any rugby programme.

More information on how to sign up will be updated shortly.
