The Touch Rugby section was formed in 2004 and was formerly known as the Old Ruckers. They play EVERY Thursday night from 7pm. Having played at a number of locations in the past including Haywards Field, Minchinhampton Primary School and The Common, they now proudly play on their own new pitches at Hampton Fields and afterwards reside at a local pub for the customary beers.
There is a wide range of abilities and ages. The intention for this section is to get people interested in playing the game again, and also for those who would love to play but either never had the chance or are concerned about full contact. In true Minch rugby fashion everyone is welcome and made to feel at home.
While injuries are very few and far between, they can occur. We play expressly on the basis that you do so 'At Your Own Risk'. All players must join Minchinhampton Rugby Football Club as a player for insurance purposes. Members of the Touch section are always welcome to play for the Minch Rams (2nd's) or if you are any good the 1st XV!
