Fast, skilful and action packed team sport...
Touch Rugby League is a fast, skilful and action packed team sport, played in a fun and social atmosphere, without any of the tackling you see in a traditional game of Rugby League.
Play it our way
At Shropshire PTRL we play outdoors, under floodlights, on a 3G artificial pitch. We mix up the teams with boys and girls, and play just for fun. What are you waiting for?
Come along as an individual or bring a group of your friends or work mate and join in the fun!
What are the rules?
The rules of Touch Rugby League are very simple so it makes it as straight forward as possible for you to join in and play. If you're new to the game you will be amazed at how easy it is to pick up.
Quick Guide to Touch Rugby League:
• The simple aim of Touch Rugby League is to score a try by grounding the ball over the opposition's try line.
• The basics of the sport are similar to the traditional game in that you pass the ball backwards and have six opportunities to score.
• To stop the other team from scoring you must touch the ball-carrying player. A legal touch is on any part of the body, clothing or ball and constitutes a tackle.
• After six touches the ball is handed over from the attacking team to the defending team.
• The game usually consists of two 20 minute halves.
• 5/6 players per team are allowed on the field at any one time and there are unlimited numbers of substitutions.
