We Showed Up露脸儿
触式橄榄球(Touch Rugby简称触球)是英式橄榄球(Rugby)的分支，以触摸代替冲撞。参与触球活动不需要橄榄球基础，也没有身体对抗，零基础，只要喜欢团队配合和跑动便可胜任。场地尺寸60米长，45米宽。每队6人上场，其中2名女性，男女同场竞技，场面激烈却不失和谐，老中青少皆宜。50%外籍爱好者同场，纯正英语，西方主流文化，中高阶级运动，是最好的国际文化交流场合，最适合家庭的运动。Touch Rugby is a super-sport; highly popular in many commonwealth countries as it retains the spirit and principles of contact rugby while being safer and more socially friendly.
As some 50% of participants were foreigners, it also became a good opportunity for local rugby enthusiasts to practice their English and familiarize themselves with international sporting culture. League rules also require that each team play at least 2 girls on the pitch at any given time. The nature of the game – safe, non-contact, suitable for all ages, and easy to learn – made it a natural way for many newcomers to get involved too!
