Papa Johns Tartan Touch

Get ready for another summer of Tartan Touch fun – Scottish Rugby’s fun, inclusive, social and simple form of rugby in the summer.

What is Papa Johns Tartan Touch?

Following the partnership between Scottish Rugby and Papa Johns in February 2022, the programme has been known as ‘Papa Johns Tartan Touch’, with the pizza delivery brand proudly working to support rugby communities in Scotland.

Running between May and July, Tartan Touch is designed to provide a simplified version of rugby with the aim of attracting players of all abilities, ages and levels of experience who are looking to improve their fitness through simple and social activity.

In 2024, there are 73 hubs across the country, so there is bound to be a hub close to you. If you are interested in playing Tartan Touch this year, please click on one of the hub event invites in the accordion below.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at [email protected].
