What is HSBC Try Rugby?

HSBC Try Rugby is fun and a fit for all. It is played under the form of Touch Rugby, with no tackles or kicking allowed, the fast-paced sport is great for fitness but easy to learn and inclusive. It also encourages the key values we want our children to embrace, such as teamwork, respect, and discipline.

What is Touch Rugby?

Touch, also known as Touch Football or Touch Rugby around the world, is a thrilling sport that welcomes all abilities and genders.

With no tackles and minimal-force touches in place, touch rugby is not only fast-paced but is also probably one the most inclusive sport, allowing girls, boys, women, and men to enjoy together and play against each other, with our Mixed competitions making Touch very popular for every age category.
