After the success of last summer's programme, Gloucester Rugby's touch rugby league kicks off this week at Longlevens RFC.
Following the success of last season's tournament, the venue at Longlevens will stay the same but participants will have the chance to play at Kingsholm towards the end of the league and as part of the first XV's preseason fixtures in August.
Aimed at adults age 16 years and above of all abilities, the Gloucester Rugby Touch league this summer will prove to be a huge hit with sides taking part in a competitive league throughout the summer.
The Touch league will start on Wednesday 3rd June at Longlevens RFC, with participants having the opportunity to learn the game or to simply socialise for the first two weeks before the league starts on Wednesday 17th June.
And, for those of you worried about it clashing with the British Lions & Irish Lions fixture against the Golden Lions, don't panic as the game will be shown in the clubhouse.
