HGCT: Touch Rugby League

What is Touch Rugby League?

female touch

We think there is a better way to getting fit and active, burning calories, building muscle tone and having fun with your friends without having to be a member of a gym...


Touch Rugby League is a fast, skillful and action packed team sport, played in a fun and social atmosphere, without any of the tackling you see in a traditional game of Rugby League.


If you prefer to play indoors or outdoors, want to mix up the teams with boys and girls, play just for fun or want a more competitive game that's fine. We run a variety of different sessions so there's bound to be one that suits you whether you are new to the sport or a seasoned pro.


Come along as an individual or bring a group of your friends or work mate and join in the fun at the play touch rugby league session at The Zone! The Zone is an indoor venue so you can come along and play no matter the weather! We have a cafe, changing facilities and a relaxed seating area to rest between games.

Huddersfield Giants Community Trust also recently won the Licensee of the Year Award for their Play Touch Rugby League programme.

The Award was presented to Giants Head of Community Development, Jonathan Timms, on behalf of the whole Giants Community Trust team at Old Trafford before the 2016 Super League Grand Final and Jonathan Timms was pleased to see the programme recognised:

“I think it is testament to the entire group and for all the hard work that Chris [Cullimore], who leads the sessions, has put in. The sessions really have been well received by players, they are a great social event but also an extremely fun way of keeping fit. Everyone knows each other and welcomes new people with open arms and it is a great way to get introduced to the sport.

“As well as our Touch Rugby sessions being recognised, it is great that people are talking about us as a Community Trust and our Sky Try delivery was also commended in conversation with RFL staff at the awards, which was hugely satisfying given the hard work and dedication towards the campaign.”
