What is Touch
Touch, also known as Touch Football or Touch Rugby around the world, is a thrilling sport that allows people of all walks of life to achieve their goals; whether that is the thrill of challenging oneself to compete at their best, the thrill of a fast, skilful and exhilarating sport, the thrill of meeting new people or the thrill of being a part of something that can span a lifetime.
It is one of the rare collective sports that girls, boys, women and men enjoy together and against each other, with Mixed competitions making Touch very popular for every age category. Touch is derived from Rugby league which used a form of Touch for training purposes. After passing through a development period during the 1960s, the game became popular during the '70s and by early in the next decade, was established in all states and territories in Australia as a sport in its own right.
