Touch in Germany

Touch Rugby is a particular variant of rugby that has been played in Germany since 2003. Touch differentiates itself from Rugby because there is no hard body contact, and no scrums or tackles. This fast and exciting sport can be played with either women's, men's, or mixed teams (3 men & 3 women). Touch is also suitable for all ages!

What is Touch?

Touch is a fast and exciting ball sport that originated in Australia. Touch is a minimum contact sport that emphasises skilful running, ball handling, and strategic team play. The goal of the game is for a team to score more points (touchdowns) than their opponent.
