What's your Men's and Women's National Touch Series tournament?

What's your Men's and Women's National Touch Series tournament?

England Touch has expanded the SPORTTAPE Men’s and Women’s National Touch Series (MW NTS) in 2018 to give both elite and emerging club teams the chance to compete in a structured single gender competition.

The Elite MW NTS will be played on both the Saturday and Sunday in Rounds 1 and 2 and is an opportunity for the top eight teams to compete for the title.

The Emerging MW NTS will be played on the Saturday only and is open to any club wanting to develop their team and players in a one-day tournament structure.

The Finals Day for both competitions will be a one-day tournament.

How do I qualify for the Elite MW NTS?

The top six teams from the 2017 standings are guaranteed a place in the Elite MW NTS, meaning that there are a minimum of two places open to any other club wishing to play in this Series.

Men’s – London Scorpions, London Galaxy, Thames Valley Vikings, Tumeke, Hot Custard, CSSC Phantoms

Women’s – London Scorpions, Hot Custard, London Galaxy, Cambridge, CSSC Valkyries, Bareback Riders
