Touch Rugby Team
About Touch Rugby
The Lordswood Lightning mixed touch team formed in August 2020 (between
lockdowns) as Rainham touch. As numbers grew a permanent home was found
at Lordswood RFC with the team becoming Lordswood Lightning in October 2021.
We are a mixed sex social/competitive team with a focus on keeping people in
the game who ordinarily wouldn't have any options other than contact rugby.
Our Touch Rugby
Picture this: a fast-paced game where both men and women can showcase their skills and compete equally. Mixed touch rugby combines the exhilaration of rugby with the simplicity and safety of touch, making it accessible to players of all ages and fitness levels. Whether you're a seasoned rugby enthusiast or a newbie looking to try something new, this sport has something for everyone.
Sense of Community
But it's not just about the game itself. Mixed touch rugby is a fantastic way to
meet new people, forge lifelong friendships, and build a strong sense of
community. The sport fosters an inclusive environment where everyone's
contribution is valued and emphasises having a blast together.
