Come And Find Out About This Fascinating Sport
Come down to Ostpark for a few trial sessions. If you like Touch as much as we do, we ask to join the club.
Never played Touch before? Interested in finding a new sport?
Touch can be a twice a week social event amongst friends, or taken very seriously all the way to the Touch Rugby World Cup.
We play in mixed teams, 3 girls and 3 guys on the pitch at anytime. Touch is similar to rugby but without the tackling.
We enjoy the summers with the Ostpark geese and we play Turbo Touch during the cold months.
Have a beer with us at Ostpark after training, come to our Christmas party or go on a weekend trip to play a tournament and discover a new city.
We are a club run by members for members. If you like to get involved we encourage you to do so.
Our players love Frankfurt and come from many different parts of the world. There's hardly a language that is not understood - natürlich auch Deutsch!
Touch is a sport that is played by all ages and sexes. In Frankfurt we have many levels of players from beginners to life long touch players. Competition varies from local games for fun to national and international levels.
Training times are announced via our email distribution list. We offer regular training sessions during the week as well as on Sunday afternoons.
You can join the team at any time during the season. After a trial period of 4 weeks we kindly ask you to join the club. Please fill out the membership form and make a payment of 40 EUR to our club account.
Visiting players who are in Frankfurt for a limited time only are asked to make a donation to the club and can be exempt from paying regular membership fees. Please contact a club official.
For the first few games you don’t need anything, in the future you may need a pair of shoes with grip. Football or hockey boots do a good job for most players.
Turbo Touch is the fast-paced indoor version of traditional Touch. The ball can be passed in any direction and you lose possession after 2 touches.

We believe Touch is the greatest sport ever but it is hardly ever shown on TV. If you've never seen a game of Touch please take your time to watch this very comprehensive video produced by Touch Australia.

Honoring the great players of Touch Frankfurt since 2009.
In January 2014, the club's first ever president - Matt Hodgson - was selected for lifelong membership in the Touch Frankfurt Hall of Fame.
Terhi came to Touch Frankfurt in its early years. Having grown up inside the Arctic Circle, she had not had the pleasure of playing touch until she moved to Frankfurt.
By the time she left Frankfurt, she was not only a pivotal part of our Frankfurt touch team, she was the only one of the entire German national squad (6 on the field and about 30 waiting in the sub-box) to score a touchdown against the 2010 NZ Academy team at the Bristol European Touch Championships.
Take the U7 or Straßenbahn 12 to Eissporthalle/Festplatz.From there, it's a 5 minutes walk to the Ostpark. Find us in the southern end of the park between the basketball court, the kiosk and the geese.
