Clifford Chance Touch Trophy Tournament
On behalf of all of us at Tanglin Rugby Club, we warmly welcome all players, coaches, and parents from the Touch Rugby community in Singapore and abroad. This terrific tournament is a highlight of our calendar, and we always look forward to watching the skills and enthusiasm on the park, married with the sportsmanship and rugby values on and off the field that touch rugby players and spectators are famous for.
– Lee Harle – TRC Club President
In 2020 we will see the 14th edition of the annual Clifford Chance Touch Trophy held at Tanglin Rugby Club.
The Tournament will be held on October 3rd and 4th in 2020.
In 2018 the tournament expanded the age groups to U10, U12, U14, U16, U20 and U23 with a record 70 teams entering that included both boys and girls teams. It was especially pleasing to see the increase in boy’s teams in 2019, with 21 teams competing for the first time in their own boy’s age group competitions rather than playing in the girl’s age group.
Touch has flourished in Singapore in the last 5 years under Touch Singapore (TSG) and we have seen enormous growth in both playing numbers and playing standards at junior level thanks to TSG enabling all clubs, schools, junior colleges,
polytechnics, universities and social teams to access the TSG Touch leagues at minimal cost.
