Percy Park Pirates - About Us

Percy Park Pirates were established in 2002 and have been apart of Percy Park RFC since the beginning. We run Social Touch sessions every week and also enter a competitive side into the Challenge Touch series that is held around the country.

Touch is a semi contact version of rugby where instead of tackles you have 6 'touches' to score a touchdown. It's great for fitness, getting back into rugby and is a very sociable game. We welcome players of all ages and genders as well as any experience level.

We have a wide variety of playing opportunities from social sessions, internal competitive leagues and national tournaments right up to Regional Selection which can lead to International representation. Pirates are affiliated with England Touch which is the official Governing Body for Touch played to FIT rules.

Looking for a fun new way to increase your fitness levels, add some social time to your life or to try a new exciting sport? Come along and give Touch a go!

Percy Park Pirates are running 5 weeks of womens or mens only try touch rugby sessions suitable for anyone aged 14yrs and over. No experience is necessary as all the basics will be covered during the sessions with easy skill drills and games. Touch is a really fun and sociable way to increase your activity levels and you won’t even realise how active you are as you’ll be too busy learning a new game and enjoying the session. Social touch can be played at any pace making it great for those who currently have low activity levels or are recovering from an injury.

Touch is a semi-contact sport that takes some of the fundamental rules of rugby but eliminates the tackling, opting for a ‘touch’ in place of the tackle. No pain, just pure fun. Touch is a really inclusive sport that can be played by both men and women in separate teams or in a mixed team with players ranging from 14-70 yrs old.

Everyone registered will receive a free wristband and if you attend 3 or more session you get a FREE t-shirt!
