What is Tartan Touch?
Tartan Touch is Scottish
Rugby’s Fun, Simple and Social version of non-contact rugby. The Tartan Touch season
begins in May at 45 hubs across Scotland and runs as a 10-week season until August, so you’re guaranteed to find one that fits into your schedule!
It’s a game for all abilities and all ages. In the past two seasons, hubs have welcomed players aged 5 to 75 years old from having never played rugby to retired players! Tartan Touch gives you the chance to work on your fitness, learn new skills, make new friends and keep active during the sunny Scottish summer!
Join in the fun and get fit at a hub near you this summer for only £3.
