Following the introduction of Rugby 7s to the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, popularity and participation numbers are at a record high.
From this Foxtel Touch7s has been developed, as the new, non-contact version of Rugby 7s that can be played by men and women and boys and girls of all ages, no matter the sporting background. Touch7s gives participants a safe and fun environment to have a high intensity workout. It’s the best way to get fit and have fun with your family and friends.
Touch7s has been introduced to bring new participants to rugby as well as give current players a social brand of game involvement. Touch7s allows juniors to learn the nuances of the sport, while practicing the basics, in a fun and safe environment. It allows for people of all abilities to explore their creative side.
There are a maximum of 7 players on the field in each team. Teams have 7 “touches” to score a try. There’s two 7 minute halves and, at typical Foxtel Touch7s Centre’s, teams play up to two matches each session.
There’s action on and off the field - fresh, funky vibes pumping around the grounds, will get you grooving and stepping on and off the pitch. Once your game is finished, there are a number of social opportunities to partake in to mix it up with your mates or family.
