Touch Players Membership


TOUCH is a minimal contact sport, played by men and women. The game emphasizes running, agility and ball handling skills such as passing and catching. It is really interval fitness training in a fun atmosphere.

Any fitness level (or none at all)
Any skill level (or none at all) - all are welcome.
No previous experience needed, don't worry just turn up and play.

Insurance Cover
Please note: Once a sub is paid, both the player and the club benefit from insurance cover. No one is insured otherwise!

BSRFC relies heavily on many sources of income of which membership fees is crucial so it is essential that every player pays.

This year we will be operating a no pay - no play system.

That being said we do believe that everyone should be able to access rugby so if you genuinely have financial difficulties and you can't pay then please contact the membership secretary.

If you have any questions then please get in touch.

Thank you
