Telford Raiders Touch Rugby League Sessions

Welcome to Telford Touch Rugby, where the game is all about fast-paced action and skill, creating a vibrant and social atmosphere without the physicality of traditional Rugby League tackling.

Playing Our Way:

At Telford Touch Rugby, our games unfold outdoors under floodlights on a top-notch 3G artificial pitch. We foster a mixed-gender environment, ensuring a fun and enjoyable experience. Whether you come alone or bring a group of friends or colleagues, everyone is welcome to join the excitement!

Understanding the Rules:

Touch Rugby League is designed with simplicity in mind, making it easy for newcomers to grasp the basics. Here’s a quick guide:

  • Score by grounding the ball over the opposition’s try line.
  • Pass the ball backwards, aiming to score within six opportunities.
  • Defend by touching the ball carrier; any touch on the body, clothing, or ball constitutes a legal tackle.
  • After six touches, possession shifts to the defending team.
  • Games typically consist of two 20-minute halves.
  • Teams field 5/6 players at a time, with unlimited substitutions.

Gear Up for the Game:
To participate in your first session, consider these essential items:

  • Water Bottle: Stay hydrated by bringing a water bottle to keep yourself refreshed during the game.
  • Appropriate Clothing: Dress according to the weather – shorts and a T-shirt for warm days or tracksuit pants and a jacket for cooler weather.
  • Footwear: On our 3G outdoor pitch, football boots with moulded studs or trainers are suitable.

It’s That Simple!
Now that you’re equipped, the next step is attending your first session. We’ll be ready to welcome you in reception and get you started on an exhilarating journey into the world of Touch Rugby League!
