Time is running out for teams to register to compete in the Winter Active Touch Leagues and The Winter Touch Leagues in London.
The first Active Touch League will start the week commencing the 20th January 2014 and we will be running three different leagues at two venues, one league on Monday evenings at Canary Wharf from 18:45 – 19:45 and the other two leagues on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Wandsworth from 18:30 – 19:30.
Active Touch is a new indoor game and is a cross between Netball, Rugby, Touch and Football. The players find it is a great way to keep fit when it’s cold outside whilst still maintaining your skill level through the winter period as the game is played at an indoor arena or on a basketball court with only four mixed players on each team. For more information on the rules of Active Touch or just to have a look at how it is played you can have a look on www.in2touch.com
The Winter touch league will commence on Sunday the 16th February 2014 at Clapham Common. There will be three different divisions on offer, Men’s, Mixed and Ladies and registrations for this league are now open and the league runs for eight weeks. You can register a team of up to 14 players or if you don’t have a team you can register as an individual and we can place you in a team for the season. To register you can have a look on our In2Touch website, www.in2touch.com or sending an email to [email protected]
Touch is played with six players on the pitch at all times and you can have up to 8 substitutes which are rolling subs. For a mixed team you must have a minimum of 2 girls on the pitch at all times. Touch is a minimal contact sport with just the slightest touch on the player or ball counts as a touch and each team has 6 touches to try score a touchdown. Touch is played at many different levels starting from very social to representing your country at the Touch World Cup. The next Touch World Cup will take place in Australia in 2015 and it’s gearing up to be the best World Cup yet as touch will be back in its birth place to see which country will be able to take on the two toughest teams, Australia and New Zealand.
Spring and Summer are normally the busiest time for touch as the weather will be perfect conditions to socialise with teams mates over a drink after the games. The dates for both seasons are still to be confirmed however Spring will start around late April, early May and Summer will begin in early July with both leagues lasting 8 weeks. There are various leagues around London with many different divisions such as Regents Park, Richmond, Surrey Quays, Putney/Wandsworth, Clapham/Wandsworth and Clapham Common.
Registration for these leagues will open shortly.
There are many more tournaments, competitions and leagues throughout the year so to find out about any of the Touch you can have a look on our website, www.in2touch.com or you can send an email to [email protected]
