Is Touch the same as Tag?
No, there’s no ‘tag’ in Touch Football! You don’t need any specific types of shorts to play like you do in a tag game.
Do you have to be fit to play Touch?
Nope, Touch Football at park level is a social sport. And there’s a reason it’s Australia’s largest social sport, with 700,000 people around the country taking part – everyone can play, no matter your age or size. It’s just about finding a social team that suits you.
What is Mixed Touch?
Many Touch Football clubs around the country offer ‘Mixed’ competitions, which means males and females can play in teams together. Depending on the age criteria set by the club, this means whole families (kids, parents, grandparents) can event play together. Even at the most elite end of the sport, there are Mixed as well as Men’s and Women’s divisions.

Touch Football Australia manages changes to the policy to maintain currency with industry requirements. In addition, claims are managed so large increases related to increase claims are evened out across the scheme ensuring stability with insurance related costs for local associations.
To review the coverage available, we recommend all individuals to consider their personal circumstance and assess if additional external coverage is required outside of what is offered as part of membership to the affiliated structure of Touch Football Australia.
