Touch7s @ Wakehurst Rugby Club
Fun Fast & Social
We are excited to announce that we are running the Rugby Touch 7s on Friday nights again this year at Wakehurst Rugby Park, Belrose.
You can register a team, join an existing team, or register as a single person and we will assign you to the most suitable team.

- NO CONTACT EXCEPT TOUCH which means NO TACKLES / BUMPS / SHOVES etc
- Each of the players get a free American Hotdog
- Full Canteen and Bar

Registering a team – each player in the team will need to be registered individually, this way they are covered under Rugby Australia insurance. We have created a Registration Guide to help people register players
“Individuals to be allocated to a team” For players who register as individual’s we will work with existing team managers to let know about the spare players looking for a team. We will also have some “spare managers” who will help create these new teams, last year we have over 10 “made” up team and its a great way to meet new friends, families and have some fun.
Team managers you need to let us know about their team, so we would ask the team manager to complete the Touch7s enquiry form “click” the link below this way we can capture
- The team name
- Age Group
- Team Type
- Managers contact details.
- Players Names
- Filling in players names will help the Touch 7s Admin team match players to teams and DOES NOT register your players, they have to register individual through rugby Explorer.
Over the next few weeks and as we get more players registered we will be running a daily report that will show new registrations, the team managers will then be able to check the list of new registrations and gather your team together, this will allocate a team name to each player.
