What we're about

A community of old, young (and some in the middle) of experienced, and newbie rugby players in the Orlando area who get together and play touch rugby on both Wednesdays from 5:30 pm (until light fails) and also on Sundays (our main get together) from 3:30-6:00 pm both at Blue Jacket Park (near Lake Baldwin), Orlando. Every couple of months we organize tournaments with the other touch rugby teams from all over Florida.

It is a great co-ed game and open to kids big enough to catch and run along with adults (so a fantastic family game), as size and strength is no advantage.

By the way, anyone who doesn't know what touch rugby is:

Wikipedia:

"Touch rugby, Refers to games derived from rugby football (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rugby_football) in which players do not tackle in the traditional, highly physical way, but instead touch their opponents using their hands on any part of the body, clothing, or the ball. (It could be described as a game of high speed tag, involving teamwork, strategy, internationally agreed rules, a ball and a referee).

Historically, a formal competitive variety, known as Touch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Touch_football_%28rugby_league%29), originally developed from rugby league (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rugby_league) and now exists as a sport in its own right. In addition, touch rugby games are played as training activities for rugby league and rugby union; as a way to develop many essential rugby skills but without suffering the cost of taking the pounding of going into contact, popular in schools and junior clubs, or just as an informal social sport."
