Over the last few years we have been running touch sessions during the summer months which has proven to be very popular. The club decided to apply to become an o2 Touch Centre to help further our touch rugby programme.

As of November Barton under Needwood RUFC has become an approved o2 Touch Centre. As a result the club will get additional support from the RFU.

O2 Touch is a fun, fast version of the game that is great for keeping fit and for anyone who has never played rugby before.

There is none of the usual contact elements of the game.  It's more about running, passing, dodging and evading.

It is a game young and old can play together.  Anyone from our Under 14 age group and older can take part. The sessions will be running on Tuesday Nights at Holland Sports Club starting 19:00.

You don't need any special kit to take part, just a pair of trainers or boots (if the ground is soft).

Everyone is welcome!!!!!!

For More information contact Myles Tydeman – 07841647643 or David Palin – 07725594170.
