FREE Corporate Touch Programme

Nottingham Rugby, in partnership with Sport Nottinghamshire, have been granted Sportivate funding from Sport England to deliver a touch rugby programme into Nottingham's workplaces during the 2014-15 season.

Touch Main

Touch is a hugely popular sport in Nottingham, with local leagues having been in operation since 2005 and over 1000 people regularly playing the sport.

The partnership with Sport Nottinghamshire and the funding via Sportivate will allow the Nottingham Rugby community team to deliver bespoke Touch sessions at workplaces, at a time to suit the employees, with the focus being on 18-24 year olds.

This programme allows companies to engage their employees in workplace health without any cost.

An initial six week introductory course will be provided as part of the programme.  Players will then be directed towards the local Touch leagues if they wish to continue playing.

Ken Pollard, Business Development Manager at Sport Nottinghamshire said, "We are delighted to be able to offer up these sessions to workplaces as a way of engaging employees in workplace health.  Whilst focusing on the 18-24 year old age group to meet the criteria of the funding, the sessions will be open to everyone.

"Sportivate is a £56 million Lottery funded London 2012 legacy project that gives more young people the chance to discover a sport that they love.  The project has been so successful that additional funding has been allocated to allow the project to continue until 2017."

Nottingham Rugby Operations Director, Chris Simon, said, "Touch is an inclusive and very social sport which is suitable for both genders and all ages and abilities.  The sessions can be delivered on a variety of surfaces at a time and location to suit.  They'll be delivered by Nottingham Rugby community coaches, Nottingham Touch Club and members of the professional team.  We hope that businesses will get involved and have a great time taking part."
