Parklife: O2 Touch Rugby
18.00 - 19.00, Thursday's
3G Pitch, Falmer Sports Centre
The latest addition to the University of Brighton Parklife programme sees a social Touch Rugby session in Falmer.
The Rugby format has been introduced by England Rugby, together with O2, and has been rolled out nationally as an inclusive, mixed-gender and social introduction to Rugby without the physical contact.
Have a look at how to play the game from the video below:
Come and join us each week throughout term to take part, no pre-registration necessary, just turn-up and play.
As part of the new Parklife activity, we are also seeking students to support the session as volunteers:
The Operator is the lead contact for O2 Touch at the centre and is responsible for running the sessions. Responsibilities may include but are not limited to:
The Ambassador’s role is primarily a marketing one driving participation at the centre by promoting O2 Touch in the local community. As Ambassadors tend to recruit players mainly from their own demographic, the Ambassador must be part of our primary target audience (16-30 years old). Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
Please note that these roles are not mutually exclusive and volunteers can swap responsibilities. Ultimately, the volunteer team as a whole has to deliver the sessions, promote the sessions and report using the O2 Touch website and app. O2 Touch Centres should be encouraged to have an even split of male and female volunteers (with at least one female in each volunteer role).
