TouchRugby.co.nz is pleased to be playing a central role in making Moire Park (Home of Massey RFC) a hotbed of Junior and Adult Touch.

Moire Park is centrally located in the whole NORWEST REGION and is an ideal venue for Summer Touch, with 8 beautiful full-sized pitches and the refurbished Massey Rugby Clubhouse for refreshments.

There is a new impetus to combine the JUNIOR and ADULT competitions under one banner and the vision of Touch Rugby promoter Graeme Wallace is to have a one-stop Community Touch competition. “Imagine moms and dads training and supporting their kids in the Wednesday afternoon schools comp, while staying behind to play their own game of TOUCH with Friends, work associates and Whanau. Kids play touch, then stay behind at the playground or on the numerous playing fields kicking and passing balls, while Mom and dad play their adult games. There really is a grade/level for all ages, shapes and sizes. In terms of competitions to enter there is the popular Wednesday afternoon Junior competition involving local schools, as well as an adult mens, mixed and over 35’s competition on a Wednesday and Thursday evening”.

The competition is administered through the www.touchrugby.co.nz portal and boasts some of Auckland and North Harbour’s most experienced referees, electronic timing and an impressive Draws and Results platform to keep the Captains and Players up to date.

“The community’s support would be really appreciated this summer, not only to reinforce MASSEY RFC as an ideal home for teams, families and individuals throughout the Waitakere, Massey and Hobsonville region, but also for those participants to keep fit, stay healthy and to enjoy NZ’s awesome summer”

Womens Touch

Hi Guys – Just to let you know that I am out of the country for the month of April.
Don’t worry I am still checking emails and you can enter our Sunday Winter Touch Competition starting on the 8 May.SA Flag

It is with regret that I inform you that the Inaugural Eden Park Touch Challenge has been cancelled. I personally wish to apologize to those managers and players who wont be getting the chance to set foot on the hallowed turf as was advertised and promoted.

Despite an enormous amount of my personal resource and energy invested in the project, as well as 45 confirmed teams entered as of this morning the decision was made by the event’s custodians NZ Rugby, Auckland Rugby, Auckland Touch and Eden Park.

Its fair to say all parties expected a better and quicker uptake and its such a great shame the event was unable to sell out.

Most importantly organizers, that have paid by direct credit or online please can you send me your bank details and I will arrange a refund immediately.

Sorry, sorry, sorry!
