Touch over Winter

Princes Park Touch has grown since its formation to become Victoria´s biggest single night competition. We pride ourselves on being the social competition with grades that suit all skill levels and a friendly, social atmosphere.

Our Summer season is in Princes Park but our Winter season is in Royal Park, North in Parkville, on Wednesday nights. 400 metres north west of our Summer grounds.

It is a fantastic location, centrally located, close to public transport,, and the surface is the best in Victoria. The location also has a new club house facilities.

Please note if you find yourself without a team for this upcoming Winter competition please contact Princes Park Touch on info@princesparktouch.com as we always place plenty of unaligned players into teams over winter.
