Newcastle Rugby Foundations is calling everyone aged 16 or over, males and females, young and old, to get involved in our Summer of Touch league, starting on Wednesday June 14

Open to players of all abilities, touch rugby is a fast, exciting, enjoyable, non-contact form of the game, and a great way to get fit in the summer evenings while spending time with your friends.

The eight-week league will run every Wednesday evening from 6.30pm until 9.30pm from June 14 through to the finals evening which sees teams play for a number of awards as well as a presentation evening with food and drink to conclude the 8 week league.

Each team will play a minimum of two fixtures, and a maximum of four fixtures each Wednesday. Squads are up to 12 players, six-a-side, with a maximum of four males on the field for each team at any one time. All games are played at Kingston Park and the surrounding grass pitches

To conclude the summer of touch there will be a beach touch festival at Longsand Beach Tynemouth.

Entries, priced at £280 for the entire summer which includes the 8 week league and the beach festival, (or £40 for the Beach only) are now open – to register a place in the summer of touch or for more information please email **gavin.beasley@newcastle-falcons.co.uk**.
