The 'Play Touch Nationals' is Touch Rugby League's only national competition, and the Rugby Football League is inviting 12 teams to compete at Winwick Leisure Centre (Saturday 10 August) and Stanley Park (Saturday 7 September) for the right to be crowned national champions. Participating teams could win an exclusive ticket package for the 2020 Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.
Touch Rugby League is a thrill-a-minute social sport, as skilful and as action-packed as the traditional physical game but without the bruises.
Games are six-a-side, although squads of up to 14 players can enter. Players must be aged 14 or over and there are no gender restrictions.
Participating teams will receive five rugby balls and a complementary lunch, and are advised to bring their own gazebos and chairs to add to the festival atmosphere.
Teams are also invited to enter both the Warrington and Blackpool events for a combined price of £150. Blackpool's 'Grand Day Out' takes place in Stanley Park on Saturday 7 September.
