With freshers week(s) in full flow across the country and University Touch clubs being high on their agenda, this looks set to be the biggest UTS series yet, with all of last years entrants rejoining with larger club numbers, and a number of new university sides entering for the first time.

Other infoCode of conduct
The University Touch Series has been created to provide a competitive environment for University Touch teams to compete against one another and develop the respective clubs, as well as to provide a stepping stone into further England Touch Series.
With this in mind we will be following the standard England Touch rules, but with a few caveats, all of which can be found here:http://www.englandtouch.org.uk/uts-code-of-behaviour/Referees
Each team will have time slots to fill with referees - this can be done with a mixture of player and full time referees but it is in your interest to ensure that you have secured the services of a full time referee to take this requirement on. We will provide payment for Full Time referees based on location and experience. There is the opportunity to purchase a new England Referees top in advance (£22 men's and women's sizes).
