Touch is a safe, non-contact sport that is growing rapidly New Zealand-wide. It can be played competitively as well as socially. Touch is a simple and easy game to learn and is one of the few sports that you can play in either a same-sex or mixed team. If you want to try a fast and fun new sport where all players are totally involved, try Touch!
