WHEN?

Saturday 11th June 2022 from approximately 10am to 5pm. Followed by a tournament social on Canal Street later.

WHAT'S IT LIKE?

It’s like fantasy football (or rather, fantasy touch rugby) except that it’s played out for real, with real players, at a real-life event!

If that still doesn’t mean anything to you, then, er.....it's a bit like speed dating in teams but hoping to enjoy some fast-paced touch games rather than find your life-long love.

WHAT HAPPENS?

During the booking process, we ask for some basic info about the amount of Touch Rugby experience you (and any other attendees you’re buying tickets for) have.

Different levels of experience ‘earn’ the player different amounts of ‘points’.

YOU'RE PROPERLY MIXED UP!

Once everyone's signed up, the basic player info is given to a number of ‘Captains’ to select Touch Rugby teams for the day.

These 'Captains' don’t see names - so they can’t just choose people they know. The player info they get is all anonymised so the draft stays competitive, fair and properly mixed up. Its a seriously sociable way to play.
Each 'Captain' is given a certain amount of ‘points’ to 'spend' on players... The more experienced players cost more. They have to balance their teams whilst trying to build the most competitive squad but also have to make sure experience levels are divided fairly across teams.

If we have several people coming from one team we'll look to keep a couple of you together.... but the whole idea of the Summer Draft is for everyone to get mixed up, stuck in and play in exciting, new teams for the day!

ON THE DAY

On arrival you're checked in and introduced to your selected teams. Who will you be playing with?

Once you're in your teams, you then have some time to get to know your new team mates for the day during the warm-ups and ultra-quick training / practice sessions every team can enjoy. Soon after, the tournament kicks-off.

The Summer Draft uses group stages, followed by knockout rounds to decide on final positions and the Cup, Bowl and Plate winners!
The number of matches played and length of matches is finalised in advance of the event date on the 11th June and looks to maximise game time whilst not exhausting everyone for their finals!
