[Zurich] Want to get fit? Come and play mixed touch rugby!

This is an advert for our tough rugby club. Oops, I mean our TOUCH rugby club.

The game is very friendly, a lot of fun and a great workout. It's the running and the passing of rugby without the tackling and big piles of bodies on the floor. We play mixed, with a ratio of something like 4-1 guys-girls (ie it's just whoever shows up).

If anybody fancies joining us for a bit of a runaround, we play on friday lunchtimes (12) and sunday afternoons (2.30) near Sallesporthalle in Zurich.

At the moment we only play in Zurich, but we're also looking to try to expand into other cities so if you're not in Zurich but interested, we'd still like to hear from you. It'd be great to establish teams in different towns to play against.

It's not commercial, although there is a membership fee of 100/yr to cover the cost of equipment and such. There's no charge to show up and try it out a few times though.

The official website is here

Sounds good. Do you need football / rugby boots?

Yeah, it's on grass, so either rugby or footy boots are a good idea. It doesn't have to be rugby boots. When I started I was playing in runners and just ended up sliding all over the place.

Re: Want to get fit? Come and play mixed touch rugby!

Is this still going on?
Had a look at the website but the contact information is down.
I'd like to give it a try, is there another open day at any point, I know the last one was rained off.

Re: Want to get fit? Come and play mixed touch rugby!

I would be, but I work every Friday in Zug, and I'm gonna be going along to the 5-a-side on Sundays

If any other days come available then give me a nudge as I've not played rugby (league) since school and would like to get back into it again

It's still on. If you're interested I wouldn't wait for an "open day". Just come along to one of the regular friday/sunday games and have a go. Everybody's friendly.

I'm not sure if this week's games are on, because a large contingent of us are going to St Tropez this weekend to compete in a beach-touch-rugby tournament

Good point, or when the ball arrives is a more accurate time.

They certainly can.

I got back from St Tropez (actually Boumes Les Mammories or something like that) last night. Because it was on the beach it was 5-a-side and we had a lot of players, we entered a men's team and a mixed team into the same competition. Both of our teams made it to the final, and the men's team ended up winning. An awesome fun weekend. I'll link some pics/movies when I get time to go through them.

Re: [Zurich] Want to get fit? Come and play mixed touch rugby!

Hi. I'm currently playing in the Oxford touch league in the UK and am really keen to keep playing (and socialising!) when I move to Zurich for a new job in September. Do you guys train through the autumn and winter too? And where in Zurich do you play?

Look forward to joining you in a couple of months!

By the way, the contact us page on the website at http://www.touchrugby.ch/contact.php doesn't seem to be working...

Yep, we'll get that fixed soon! You can email us at contact@touchrugby.ch. We train all year. Actually one of the most fun games I can remember was playing in about a foot of snow

Here are links to some photos from the latest two "internationals". Paris and St Tropez. Lots of fun!

Yep, some of our guys went to Paris the other week and had an absolute ball. I couldn't make that one unfortunately...

Cheers for the contact details. I'll definitely look forward to joining you for touch in the snow later in the year!

There's another Paris trip next month, this one being international rather than club. Since Zurich = Switzerland for touch rugby, I suspect we'll get thumped even harder this time around!

The party in the evening was very cool!

Re: [Zurich] Want to get fit? Come and play mixed touch rugby!

Hi Guys, nice to find you all chatting here! We are looking at getting a Swiss Touch Leage going by 2008. Would you know of anyone outside of Zurich who would be interested in forming their own team/club? We would be glad to give you help with coaching, forming a club (in Switzerland it is very easy!).....If you are in Zug,Luzern,Basel or Geneva I would know about others who would be interested in joining you

Have you seen the re-vamped www.touchrugby.ch yet?
