A partner | A business | An investment | An opportunity

Touch is becoming increasingly popular across England, in many forms, with well over 25,000 registered players participating in both social and coached sessions in 2015 and over 150,000 hours attended.

Existing league partners are a big part of this success and will continue to be vital for introducing new players to the game. But the time is right for us to spread our reach and take our sport to more communities and sports clubs nationwide.

England Touch Leagues can help make the sport more accessible, more competitive and more sociable for all those who want to play.

An England Touch League is a partnership between England Touch as the national governing body and you, as the local competition organiser.

We provide you with the support and advice you need to establish and then manage your league effectively, and you will get all the benefits that come with a League Affiliation Membership, such as insurance; access to development days, education pathways, coursework, and specialist coaching days; promotion via the England Touch network; and advice and support regarding safeguarding, equality, inclusion and judiciary matters.

By investing in your area we will both benefit in terms of players, teams and income, and can grow your business and England Touch as a whole.
