What is Touch?

Touch is one of the fastest growing sports in the Edinburgh area, played by people of all ages and skill levels. Introduced by players from the southern hemisphere in the 70’s, touch is a fast, evasive, non-contact form of rugby. It is one of the few team sports where men and women compete on teams together not only socially but at an international level.
