Welcome to Spitfires Touch Rugby Club

 

About Us

 

Welcome to Spitfires Touch Rugby Club. We are a mixed touch rugby club based in Birmingham.  Formed in 2021 we have grown into a large social, inclusive and competitive developing team for all ages and abilities from ex-contact players to people who have never even picked up a rugby ball – all are welcome!

 

What’s Touch Rugby

 

Touch Rugby is a simple, but fast paced game for all ages and abilities with no contact.  Instead of making tackles, we make touches on any part of the body, clothing or ball. Each team has 6 players on the field at a time and they have six attempts to try and score a try (unless a turnover is awarded, then the ball goes to the other team).  Passes are only allowed backwards to move forwards and its fantastic for cardio fitness, confidence and loads of fun.

What a busy few weeks!  We have been training hard at home and enjoying the sunny weather ready.  Every week we have a “player of the week” award who gets to take home a coveted trophy.  Players of the week for May include: Bill, Mossy and Fran!  Don’t they look happy with their awards 😉

 

On 18th May the club celebrated our Awards Day.  All sections from Erdington Rugby Club were present to celebrate their achievements over the season. We had superb weather, great speeches and some dodgy impromptu Walking Rugby which the seniors won (if you believe in “next try wins”).
