JOIN THE FISHERMAN FAMILY
The Stockholm archipelago has been inhabited since the 6th century and consists of some
30 000 islands, islets and skerries. Fishing combined with small-scale farming was the livelihood for the early inhabitants of the islands. You can just imagine the hardship that the early fisherman/farmers had to endure on these remote islands.
Stockholm Touch takes inspiration form the old fishermen and the strong bond that was forged beteween them.
Touch Stockholm is a social club and touch is one of the few sports that is played mixed. Players of all ages and genders contribute and enjoy the game.
I first came to a sunny summer’s evening session in August 2017 on my arrival in Stockholm. Since then I have played through sun, heat, rain, sleet, ice and snow with a great group of internationally minded people always keen to improve, but most of all to have fun. Previous experience is not necessary -I played rugby through school and university and am still unlearning old habits. Just bring a can do attitude and a smile.
I'm from Tehran, the capital city if Iran, and came to Sweden in 2010 to study a Masters program at Linköping University, where I first got introduced to rugby by a classmate, during my second year. I then moved to Stockholm in 2014. Here, an Australian friend of mine encouraged me to try Touch as another type of rugby. That was in 2015 and my love for this game has been growing ever since.
One sunny afternoon in June 2014 at Gärdet in Stockholm I found a group of lovely Touch players and just started playing with them. I wasn't good, didn't understand the game and the rules but I had so much fun that I continued to go to the sessions. I tried out rugby before but enjoyed mostly the running and passing. Well that's what Touch is about... Our highlight was our very first tournament in Nice 2015. Since then the touch journey goes on.
