EUTRC is at the forefront of Touch Rugby’s huge ascent over the last couple of years, and is now one of the widest-played sports at UK universities. It’s a fast-paced, athletic game that equally welcomes those from a rugby-playing background and complete novices. It’s a test of fitness, speed, agility and ball control, played in both mixed and same-sex teams. For those looking to take up a high-performance sport seriously, EUTRC offers quality coaching from our cohort of regional and national players, as well as weekly tailored Strength and Conditioning sessions. The club’s standard of play has continued to grow; we placed 2nd in the University Touch Series last year, and our girls came 3rd in Spring Chick, the premier women’s touch rugby tournament in the Northern Hemisphere. Our members vary from those looking to seriously compete at national university tournaments, to those looking to keep fit, to those looking to try something new. There’s a side of the club for everyone, which is something we continuously pride ourselves upon. Our sociable atmosphere is at the heart of everything we do; the mixed teams allow us to train and compete together every week, which makes for an enjoyable atmosphere. Last year we went on tour to Valencia and won a tournament consisting of teams from all over Europe. The subsequent, justifiable celebrations after a great performance are hugely enjoyable, as are all our socials. They are often attended by a huge majority of the club, allowing everyone to get together away from the field and enjoy themselves. This friendly atmosphere extends into all aspects of the club, making it one of the most enjoyable clubs to be a part of at Exeter.
