Touch | The perfect sport for all ages!

Overview

Touch Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the country with over 25,000 people playing regularly nationwide.
Touch can be played by all genders, skill and ages alike, making it one of, if not the most inclusive sport in the world. While it is most commonly thought of as a ‘warm up’ game for Rugby, Touch has its own governing body as well as a World Cup and has now established itself firmly both here in the UK as a sport and across Europe in its own right.
2018 will see England host the European Touch Championships, and 18 countries have confirmed their participation, more countries than compete in the Rugby World Cup!
England Touch is currently working on getting more younger players involved in the sport starting at the basic level and going all the way through to international representation. There are several pathways that aids this progression, from schools programmes through to club competitions and regional representative teams.

Junior Touch League

Manchester Chargers and Fully Charged Events are proud to announce a new league for 2018 that is solely aimed at Juniors aged 11 – 16.
On Wednesday afternoons for six weeks between May 2nd and June 6th there will be a league format for 11-16 year old teams for boys and girls. Unlike other forms of Rugby, Touch can be played by all ages, so these teams are open to all players aged 16 and under, not just the one age group.

2018 Team Entries – Now Open

Entry Fee: We have set an entry price at just £150 (just £2.50 per player, per week for a team of 10).

2016 Summer League – Finals Night

An excellent finals night in Manchester on Wednesday 29th July.
Both divisions have seen some excellent displays of Touch in the past 10 weeks and both divisions went down to the very last game of the season to decide the winner!

~• Super Six •~

It was decided that it would be a ‘winner takes all’ final, a great intense game with both sides having seasoned professionals playing. It was the mixture of youth and experience of the Hit and Run team that edged their 8-6 win in a climactic finalè.
Winners – Hit n’ Run
Runners up – 2 Fresh

Hit N Run 2 Fresh

~• Division One •~

10 teams took to the fields with a range of background from rugby players to solicitor firms and from groups of friends/colleagues to corporate sponsored teams.
The penultimate game saw Havas Lynx lose to a well drilled Oldham Rufc side, which put pressure on 2nd in the table, Ganked, who had to win their final game to be in with a chance of their title hopes.
A strong Ganked team went on to beat Bees and it was a tense few minutes as the officials counted up the for/against scores. But some big scoring early season games set Ganked in good stead to clinch the title!
Winners – Ganked
Runners up – Havas Lynx
Ganked Havas Lynx

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone involved in making it such a huge success. All 16 teams (and their organisers!), the referees, the club and staff and all of the back room staff who’ve helped along the way.
Hope to see you all again soon as we run our late summer ‘Manchester Mayhem’ league starting on July 20th.
Keep up to date on social media too
