Ross Sutherland RFC have been accepted to be included in the growing number of Tartan Touch Hubs across the country.
They have been approved as a Tartan Touch Hub for both Golspie and Invergordon and believe that they are the only club to have two dedicated hubs, which reflects their desire to increase their presence in Sutherland.
Tartan Touch is Scottish Rugby’s fun, simple and social version of non-contact rugby. It’s a game for all abilities and all ages played throughout the Summer months.
In the past two seasons, hubs have welcomed players aged five to 75 years old from having never played rugby to retired players.
The aim of Tartan Touch is to touch the ball down over the opponent’s goal line. To do this, you need to keep possession by avoiding being touched.
Possession is lost if you are touched six times; the ball leaves the pitch; the ball is passed forward, dropped forward, or kicked forward; foul play by team in possession.
Tartan Touch will run for 10 weeks from May through until July and will be played at the club ground in Invergordon and the astro pitches at Golspie
Tartan Touch is free for all club members and Highlife Highland card holders, and £3 per session for everyone else.
