What is your game cancellation policy?

Touch is an all weather sport and is played in all weather conditons.

Games are only cancelled or postponed if we are legally not permitted to play, or conditions are considerred dangerous. The two primary weather reasons being:

  • Lightning in the imminent area such that it may strike competitors. This will be assessed on the night and if lightning is imminent games will be halted (players shelter in clubrooms) until it clears, at which time (light permitting) games will resume
  • Extreme heat or air pollution. That being temperatures forecast to be clearly above 36 degrees or an air quality index forecast to be above 150 (at game time). This will be assessed thoughout the day of competition and will be posted by 4 PM.

We have only ever cancelled two rounds due to weather

Cancellation information will always appear on the website first (we will also try to email captains). Therefore if there is nothing on the website then games are going ahead. Please do not call or email just check the website.

Where possibe we shall replay any rounds that have been lost, but this is not always possible, as such we prefer to play (when safe).
