A Touch Rugby Festival
Reading Abbey Rugby Club - B481 Peppard Rd, Reading RG4 9AL.
IT IS WITH REGRET THAT THE ALL IN TOUCH FESTIVAL HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK.
AS SOON AS THE SITUATION HAS STABILISED WE WILL ADVISE OF A NEW DATE FOR THE EVENT.
The festival takes place on TBC. In true festival fashion and being together as a community, there is a campsite for each team and all others in attendance to set up camp and enjoy drinks with each other and neighbours. There will be food services on-site, a bar and amenities. Friday will see us with our gracious hosts and sponsors at the Blagrave Arms (35 Blagrave St, Reading, RG1 1PW), launching the event with a bang. On Saturday, we play the O2 Touch Tournament, with awards in the evening and a night co-hosted by the oh-so-humble “international award-winning drag superstar”, Wilma Fingadoo, and some other very special guests. The tournament itself is mixed and inclusive – teams may consist of any players over the age of 16. For obvious reasons, the evening event is 18 and over.
Accommodation: Camping available on site, plus local hotels in the area (contact us for a promo code).
As we know, doing sport isn’t just about being part of a team or club. Life comes with its ups and downs and we all have to be there to support one another.
The benefits of sport and physical activity on our mental health are endless: improved mood, decreased chance of depression and anxiety, and a better and more balanced lifestyle.
Everyone has mental health – and evidence shows that the benefits of physical activity on our wellbeing are profound. Not just that but rugby provides a network of people who have TREDS at their heart. That is what rugby is for many of us, what our clubs are to us. All in Touch is a festival with connection in mind, a touch festival to allow as many people within the South of the UK to be able to come together, play together, enjoy a sport and talk.
