Touch Football is one of the only sports that was invented in Australia. It's a sport that's been formally recognised for more than 50 years. The sport's Golden Jubilee was celebrated in 2018.
The founding fathers of Touch Football were Bob Dyke and Ray Vawdon, of the South Sydney Junior Rugby League Club, who invented it as a method of training for Rugby League and as a means of allowing retired players to keep running around in a competitive game.
By 1968, Touch Football had become a stand-alone sport when the South Sydney Touch Football Club was formed. After passing through this period of development during the 1960's, the game became popular during the 70's and by early in the next decade, was established in all states and territories in Australia as a sport in its own right.
The United Club enters junior and senior teams in the local Orange Thunder Touch competition. The competition starts in October and runs through to March with a break over the holiday period. The club enters both boys and girls teams in various age groups from U/7s U/11s U/13s U/15s and seniors.
