Touch Association

About Hong Kong Touch Association

Touch started in Hong Kong in 1988, with under 200 members and a single tournament, the Summer Touch Tournament. The Hong Kong Touch Association (HKTA) was formed in 2003 to help administer and organise the sport in Hong Kong, and it is a member of the Federation of International Touch (FIT). The HKTA is a Registered Society, holds a Business Registration, and is based at the offices of the Hong Kong Rugby Union in Olympic House.

The HKTA Committee, made up of volunteers from the Touch community, oversees the sport, and the HKRU employ one full time Touch Manager, as well as providing development support through the auspices of their Community Department.

While Touch is recognised and supported as an independent sport, at schools level it makes sense to share resources between HKRU and HKTA as touch is the best game that can be introduced on hard court surfaces.
