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!

This weekend saw 5 members of Percy Park Pirates attend the All England Training camp in Welbeck down near Loughborough for the final stages of their European Touch Championships campaign. The final squads of 16 players will be announced in the next week and we wish our players the best of luck on being selected.
Representing the women are Lesley McCallion and Aimee Findlay who hoping to make the final 16 of the England Women's 35s. Then we have Ian Moody and Julian Wilson who are waiting to hear of selection for the England Mens 45s squad. Paul Ainscough, usually a player within the M45s but currectly recovering from injury, has taken on the mantle of the M45s assistant coach, a guaranteed representative from Pirates.
Pirates are also hopeful for some of their youth players to make the England Junior Squads later in the year aiming to play in the Junior Touch Championships held in Stirling, Scotland during August.
