About Glasgow Centurions Touch Rugby Club
Glasgow Centurions Touch Rugby Club are a new mixed, men's and women's, team based in the West End of Glasgow. We are currently on the lookout for new members to join our ranks! Everyone over 18 is welcome regardless of age, sex or experience.
We were founded in September 2014 and have just completed our first full season. Although we have some experienced players and coaches we are, on the whole, a beginner’s team. Many of our players have only started playing the sport within the past 6 - 8 months. Over the course of the last year we have played our first tournaments and leagues and expanded to over 30 members. Our membership includes male and female players of all different ages and walks of life, we are a diverse bunch! Would you like to be a part of our growing team?
So what is touch? Don't be put off by the word rugby! Touch is a minimal-contact version of the game which is suitable for all ages and abilities. It is played on a 70m x 50m pitch which is half the size of a standard rugby field. Touch is unique in that it is one of a few team sports where both men and women play together in the same mixed team. Its a relatively simple game where all that is needed is a rugby ball, some space to play and some people to take part! The game is similar in some ways to rugby league but does not including any of the tackling, mauling, lineouts, kicking, scrummaging or rucking. It can be a fast paced sport and is great for fitness.
The skills you will develop while playing touch include teamwork, communication, ball control, agility and of course general fitness. As well as all this you will get the chance to meet our awesome team of friendly players who will be happy to welcome you to the club! No experience is required to join our training sessions and if you are new to the sport it would be an ideal opportunity to get involved one of the world fastest growing team games. We train outdoors weekly in Victoria Park and all our sessions are free. Why not come down, meet our team and find out what touch is all about! We look forward to seeing you!
