In 2013 London Scottish became a Touch Rugby Centre for the wider Richmond area.
Touch is an 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 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 pub for anyone that is thirsty and old enough. We also arrange fixtures against other teams on a regular basis for those who are keen to play.
If you have a team already, bring them down and join in. 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 the very experienced!
If you play at another club, you are still welcome to play touch in our sessions.
The rules and how to play are easy to learn and you will be into the swing of things very quickly.
