Following a nomination process and announced at the ETA AGM at the beginning of November the dates and venues for the combined National and Challenge Touch Series have been set.
Canterbury is confirmed as the location of the 4th CTS event. News of the series finals venue will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
Due to the dramatic growth of Touch in England, and the number of clubs wanting to play Touch, a review of the NTS has been undertaken to ensure it maintains its status as the highest level club tournament.
In a bid to maintain the high standards of the NTS, and allow for new and developing clubs to establish themselves on the Touch scene, a new two tier system is being launched for the 2012 season.
The introduction of the new Challenge Touch Series (CTS) aims to develop the club game and encourage more club sides to get involved at a national level. This will be tied in with development days for referees, grass root players and more elite players running alongside each Touch event.
More info will be sent out directly to the NTS Teams shortly. CTS opening/entry info will also be communicated VERY shortly!
