What is Tartan Touch?

Everybody is welcome to turn up on the night and give it a go!

Tartan Touch is Scottish Rugby’s Fun, Simple and Social version of non-contact rugby. With only 8 simple rules it is a great game for all abilities and all ages. Team are organise on the spot, you only need to turn up to play.

How to play Tartan Touch

The aim is to touch the ball down over opponent’s goal line. To do this, you need to keep possession by avoiding being touched.

Possession lost if:

  • Touched 6 times
  • Ball leaves the pitch
  • Ball passed forward, dropped forward, or kicked forward
  • Foul play by team in possession

When touched:

  • Offload within 2 steps or 2 seconds – No offside from the offload
  • Place ball on ground – Offside line created
  • Must be passed away by touched player or a teammate

Get involved! Turn up on the night!

  • Contribute with £3 at Hughenden on the night
  • Under 16’s get £1 single pass
  • Under 12’s go free if accompanied on the pitch by an adult.
