The Southerners Touch Rugby team on their latest tour to Kuala Lumpur 2019
Playing Touch Rugby in Bangkok is a great way to meet people and stay fit, both men and women play mixed Touch Rugby and all skill levels are welcome. Touch Rugby is open to Southerners members and non-members, men and women, all ages!
The sport’s presence in Bangkok started about 15 years ago when a group of women associated with the Southerners set up the Southerners Touch Rugby section. Regular training was held alongside the rugby team and the Touch Rugby section soon evolved to include men.
Since then, other teams have come and gone, but the Southerners have been a constant factor in the Bangkok Touch Rugby scene. Currently the Southerners are the only full-time Touch Rugby team in Bangkok (apart from international school teams). We run two Touch Rugby sessions a week, compete in regional tournaments such as Cambodia, Shanghai or Singapore, and organise our own competitions here in Bangkok.
The Southerners Touch Rugby section holds a special role within the club, as our team includes dedicated members, as well as players from the other sections: rugby, netball, cricket and social members. So it is no surprise that Touch Rugby is one of the best introductions to the club, and an excellent way to establish a social network in Bangkok!
