First up, we think it’s important that you appreciate - unlike other social sports venues - our umpires grade themselves every night and have standards to meet. Why is this important? Because when a game is controlled well, it’s more enjoyable for the players.
Unlike standard touch, in Turbo Touch™ you can pass the ball in any direction. And unlike standard touch which has become a bit technical and robotic, Turbo Touch™ is all about flare and creativity.
Turbo Touch™ is like combining touch, netball, basketball and Ultimate Frisbee into the one unique sport. This would have to be the easiest way to get fit on the planet: you’ll be sweating before you even notice you're puffing.
Turbo Touch™ was developed by Touch New Zealand in association with Ike Tapine Wilson and George Albert Jahnke, two Touch players who wanted to create a sport that could be played all year, indoor and out, that a wide range of people could enjoy. It launched in Wellington in 2009, with competitions in Auckland, Hamilton, Hawkes Bay, Christchurch and Whangarei close behind.
