The ever popular non-contact sport for adults
The Touch Rugby Challenge is the fifth event in the London Corporate Decathlon. Basketball, Touch Rugby and Volleyball form the Team Sports Series.
The Sport: Touch started in Australia in 1923 as a social or "park" game and as a training technique for rugby league. It was not then viewed as a sport in its own right. It was formalised into a sport by the "Founders of Touch", Bob Dyke and Ray Vawdon of the South Sydney Junior Rugby League Club. Touch rugby is a great social summer sport that allows not only avid rugby players but also beginners to take part due to the uncomplicated rules.
The Challenge: The tournament is for mixed teams between six and fourteen squad members. It is the Team Captains role to delegate and coordinate team players. If you would like to arrange training sessions, please contact the Tournament Manager.
