About our Sport

National Touch Rugby Australia (NTRA) is a Not For Profit sporting organisation that promotes the sport of Touch Rugby in Australia and Overseas.

It was established in 1997 by David Douglas and Karen Douglas, along with a number of other dedicated sport lovers who wanted to develop the sport of Touch Rugby for the enjoyment of people of all skill levels at an affordable cost. 


NTRA provides a high quality Touch Rugby competition focused on delivering a friendly, social and rewarding touch rugby experience while still encouraging a competitive spirit. 
NTRA promotes the participation of players as young as 13 years of age with there being no limit on the maximum age. We welcome players with any level of experience and encourage participants to play for the enjoyment and camaraderie of the game of Touch Rugby. 


NTRA would also like to acknowledge the work done by Mark Young, in establishing a robust set of laws in the early days of NTRA which has ensured this game has grown to be what it is today and can be enjoyed by all.

There are a number of Affiliated clubs in Australia and New Zealand.
