BASIC RULES OF TOUCH RUGBY:
Touch is played in a similar way to rugby, but the rules are very different
These are the basic rules, but there may be some variations depending on the league or competition.
Touch is the new sport that is developing the fastest in Europe due to its simplicity, the mixed aspect and the opportunity to play with players of different ages in the same team (parents and children).
Among the values of Touch, integration, respect, tolerance, passion, improvement, effort, cooperation and fun stand out.
Touch is one of the few team sports in which girls and boys, women and men enjoy playing together and against each other. Mixed competitions make the Touch very popular for all ages.
This is a sport that is growing rapidly across Europe and every year we see new competitions and hundreds of new players. An accessible, fun and enriching sport.
