Wales Touch Series host venues confirmed

March 2, 2016

The WTS hosting venues have now been confirmed for 2016 and clubs will shortly be invited to register for what promises to be the biggest and best Wales Touch Series to date.

 

The 2016 edition of Wales' premier club Touch competition gets underway on Saturday 7 May at the Centre of Sporting Excellence in Ystrad Mynach.  

 

Later rounds are being held in Cardiff and South Gower, with the final tournament of the series touching down in north Wales for the first time - Cyffwrdd Bala Touch aim to increase exposure of Touch throughout the region on Saturday 25 June.

 

WTA Programme Manager, Matt Adams said; "It's fantastic that newly established clubs will be hosting rounds of the WTS this year.  It's particularly pleasing to see the series being hosted at Bala RFC by Bala Touch and at Ystrad Mynach by Caerphilly Chargers.

 

The exposure of the game will be increased in those areas and hopefully result in more local people wishing to take up the game."

 

Another exciting addition to the series is the first ever Junior Wales Touch Series which is being held on Sunday 19 June by South Gower RFC.  Categories for under 11 and under 15 will be on offer.  

 

WTA's Development team have been working on plans to extend club provision to juniors and an open meeting was recently held for any Touch clubs wishing to include a junior section.

 

Sophie Wilkinson, from the WTA Development group, explains further; "It's really important to us that young players are given an opportunity to play in an age specific tournament.  We've already received plenty of interest in the Junior WTS and we hope that all of Wales' Touch clubs accept our offer to help introduce junior sections."

 

The full 2016 Wales Touch Series Calendar can be seen below.  WTS registration details will be announced shortly via the WTA website and social media feeds.  In the meantime, you can email programme.manager@walestouch.wales for further information.
