In 2013 London Scottish became an O2 Touch Centre for the wider Richmond area.
O2 Touch is a RFU initiative for the community to get involved in rugby without the contact, scrums and line-outs and appeals to everyone keen to have fun through games, those that want to get fit and those that just want to enjoy time out with friends or meet new people.
You do not need to be a member at London Scottish to play at the O2 Touch Centre.
The format is pitch up and play with a bit of coaching at the start and then playing games in mixed teams on the night, finishing with a social drink afterwards in the Orange Tree Pub for anyone that is thirsty.
If you have a team bring them down. If you have never played, we'll show you how.
If you are older but still have the skills, make sure you join in!
It is open to all players, male and female, from the age of 15 to adult!
If you play at another club, you are still welcome to play in the summer touch.
Rules and how to play are easy to learn and you will be into the swing of things very quickly.
Who can play - U15 to adult
All levels, male and female, beginners, ex-rugby players, seasoned rugby players, juniors from U15
