Elite NTS

Elite NTS
The Elite National Touch Series gives club players the opportunity to take a major step towards playing at representative and international level.
  • Three single-day tournaments, with final rankings based on league points earned in the tournaments
  • An invitation-only Series, based on the expressions of interest received and 2019 overall rankings
  • Every team has to bring a full-time referee qualified to at least Level 1 standard. Teams will have to specify the name of this referee when they sign up for the tournament. The full referee policy is in the FAQ document

All Rounds will be live streamed on YouTube.

As well as live streaming, the £250 per team tournament fee cover venue and field hire, photography, medical provision, referees, PA and marquee hire, equipment and other expenses.
