How to Play

Touch is one of the easiest sports to play anywhere on the planet! All you need is a ball, a space to play in, and some people to play the sport with you!

As with any sport, Touch can get more complicated as you get more experienced and accustomed to tactics and positions. But the core skills and rules are easy to learn and remember, and because Touch is a minimal contact version of rugby men, women, boys and girls of all ages can play on the same pitch as equals!

England Touch offers a range of coaching and referee qualifications to enhance your understanding of the sport; details are in the Develop section of this website and in our Club Toolkit.
