The Business House Touch Rugby Championships kicked off last week.

The tournament is held at St. Joseph’s College Alafua.

Twenty-four teams are competing for the title this year. There are 35 government agencies and local businesses participating.

The tournament runs on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for eight consecutive weeks. 

According to a report from the Samoa Touch Rugby Incorporated, the popularity of the sport among the business and government community has led to the rescheduling of the tournament to the beginning of the year to cater for new teams.

The Business House Touch Rugby Championships is also part of the Samoa Touch Rugby Incorporated strategic plan to strengthen the sport through the participants from private and public sectors by providing opportunities to network and establish a platform for teambuilding within workforce.

The opening round of the Business House Touch Rugby Championships this year also commemorated the International Women’s Day. It celebrated all women who have played and contributed to touch rugby over the years. 

Samoa Touch Rugby Incorporated is pleased to see new teams and fresh talent in this year’s tournament.
