"Touch refers to games derived from rugby league in which players do not tackle in the traditional, highly physical way, but instead touch their opponents using their hands on any part of the body, clothing, or the ball.
The sport of Touch requires very little equipment, its easy to learn, and anyone can play whether you're 5 or 50. Touch's other unique factor is it's a family game. Kids, their parents and even grandparents can all participate in the same team!
As a result it is a popular game from the very social to the highly competitive.
There are mens, womens and mixed grades. Teams are made up of up to 14 players, and have 6 players on the field at one time, with the ability to sub on and off at will."
