Belfast Social Touch commences 9th October
Encouraged by the recent numbers participating in the IRFU Boost Touch League in Belfast, Touch is set to be launched in Belfast on a more permanent basis. Based on the model in Stepaside in Dublin, Social Touch will commence on the 9th October in Belfast.
Several activities are going on at the moment:
a. Training for the initial Ireland Touch Championship;
b. Creation of a web site and social media outlets on Facebook and Twitter;
c. Securing a playing venue.
The search for the best venue is ongoing but it looks like the Valley Leisure Centre ticks all the boxes:
1. All weather pitches ( 2 full football pitches);
2. Available all year round;
3. Available on the preferred time slot of 10:00 to 12:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning;
4. Male and Female changing and shower facilities;
5. Plenty of off street car parking;
6. Cafe for relaxing after playing;
In addition, there is space for at least 4 touch pitches for one day tournaments.
