Touch Rugby

Get involved and get active with the Touch Rugby club at NTU.

Join our Touch Rugby club

Have you ever wanted to play rugby, but been worried about all the harsh contact? Join Touch Rugby! It is just like normal rugby but stripped down to its core skills. Touch Rugby is a sport for all, no matter your gender, ability or age. If you can catch, run and pass a ball you can play Touch Rugby. As it is a minimal contact format men and women all play on the same pitch. We offer 2 training sessions a week, with coaches from the England Touch setup.


Touch Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports nationally and is now growing quickly at university level. Being a mixed sport, it allows both males and females to compete together. As a fast, evasion-based sport that welcomes all abilities. Whether you've played rugby for many years or you are brand new to the game, you can get involved!

We enter teams into both national and local competitions ranging from tournaments to friendlies including the England University Touch Series and have several current members who are involved in Touch Rugby at an International Level.

We train on Clifton 3G and Grass Pitches on Thursdays and Saturdays.

How to join

There will be taster sessions running during freshers week, you can find more information regarding these on our social media and at freshers fair.
