Something for the weekend?

Play Touch Rugby League goes from strength to strength 

The RFL’s new initiative Play Touch Rugby League, a fast-paced, minimal-contact version of the game is already proving popular across the country with over 50 venues offering the programme. And what’s more today sees the launch of the campaign’s new video ( to inspire people of all ages, sizes and abilities to take part. 

Play Touch Rugby League is a great alternative to the gym - participants can have fun getting fit whilst enjoying the excitement and camaraderie of the traditional game but without high impact tackling.

The sport provides a superb all body workout in only 40minutes, with players covering over 3km and working at 80 per cent of their maximal heart rate throughout the game.

Mark Bitcon, England Rugby League National Team Performance Manager and Director of Performance at Super League champions Wigan Warriors said: “It’s an extremely beneficial way of improving and maintaining your fitness. You can cover close to two miles in a game whilst having fun in a friendly, social environment.

“Many professional sports teams use activities like Touch Rugby League in their pre-season and season workouts as a way of keeping fit and helping to condition their bodies. Minimal contact appeals to many players that have never played before or have left due to injury.”

Camilla Zeitlin, a 21-year-old student from Chester got her first taste of the sport by taking part in Play Touch Rugby League and has been impressed by the experience.

“Before I started University, I had never played or even watched rugby. If you had told me then that I was going to become a Rugby League player, I would have laughed!” exclaimed Camilla.

“It’s a great workout, and I feel physically so much fitter since joining the League. The guys that we play with are incredibly supportive when we play within the mixed teams, like nothing else I’ve ever experienced in playing sport.

“I would encourage anyone looking to try a new sport to find their local Play Touch Rugby League, no matter what your fitness level or experience. It has been hugely rewarding for me in terms of the skills I have learnt and the people I have met. It has made me fall in love with sport all over again!” she added.

Over 50 venues across the UK have already signed up to deliver the new format of the game this year. Along with traditional rugby clubs, local sports clubs and leisure centres will be joining Powerleague venues to offer teams and individuals the chance to try the new sport.

An offer that's worth listening to

and will be music to your ears

By purchasing selected Shredders from Fellowes we’ll reward you with iTunes vouchers!

Power to the people

With the increased usage of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and mobile computing products - comes an ever increasing need to keep them charged up. The portable power market is now worth £640m and consists of products such as USB wall and car chargers and other portable charge devices. Across the UK, 45% of portable electronic users say they always need more power and end up having to watch their device usage carefully to get through the day, clearly demonstrating the size of market that exists. 

This year, we have not only extended our range of Tablets to include iPad Mini, iPad Air, HP EliteBook, HP ElitePad, Galaxy Tab 3, but also our range of portable power solutions including Apple and Energizer. All Energizer Apple power solutions are authorized by Apple which is important as it appears that the latest Apple upgrade to iOS7 is blocking any “Lightning” chargers which have not been authorized by Apple from charging their device.  Also brand new for this year are our range of Powercases. Powercases are protective cases for iPhones, iPads and other devices that incorporate an ultra-slim, lightweight lithium polymer battery pack that can recharge your device. So when using PowerCases you get piece of mind that not only is your device protected in a stylish case but also that you are less likely to run out of battery life when they need it the most.
