Jakarta's Touch Rugby Club will hold its second Bali International Touch Tournament in Seminyak on Saturday, October 2, 2004, as part of Kuta Karnival 2004.

Action will get under way at Lapangan Banteng, Seminyak from 10 a.m..

First held in 2000, the one-day tournament returns to Bali by popular demand. At least eight, 10-player teams are expected to participate in the tournament with teams traveling to Bali from Jakarta, Singapore and Malaysia.

Shade, food and drinks available on the pitch will help for a great day of action for event spectators and players alike. Post tournament celebrations are also planned at a local restaurant following the match.

Touch rugby or "touch," as it is more commonly known, is a minimal contact version of the sport. Played worldwide by men, women and children of all ages, the game emphasizes running, agility and ball handling skills, such as passing and catching.

"Touch appears similar to rugby, minus the tackles, scrums and kicking. It is played on a flat surface, half the size of conventional sports fields. Although a social game, there are now commercial leagues and school competition held around the world. The official governing body is the Federation of International Touch.

Proceeds from the October event will benefit facilities improvements at local schools near the field and the Harry Burton Memorial Scholarship Fund. This year's Bali tournament is organized by The Works, ProMotion Events and Jakarta Touch Rugby Club. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
