Come play Turbo Touch in Busan. Sessions are held every Saturday at the Busan International Foreign School from 1pm to 3pm in the indoor gymnasium and everyone is welcome! We play mixed teams, with juniors and seniors playing together.
What Is Turbo Touch All About?
It is a fast paced indoor game combining elements of Touch, League, Netball, Basketball and Ultimate.
Turbo Touch™ was developed by Touch New Zealand in association with Ike Tapine Wilson and George Albert Jahnke, two Touch players who wanted to create a sport that could be played all year, indoor and out, that a wide range of people could enjoy. It launched in Wellington in 2009, with competitions in Auckland, Hamilton, Hawkes Bay, Christchurch and Whangarei close behind.

How To Play Turbo Touch
Turbo Touch is generally played on an indoor Basketball court with 5 players on the court at any given time, with no more than 10 players allowed on a team.
The great thing about Turbo Touch is undoubtedly that you can pass the ball forwards, sideways and backwards during the course of a match. The score zone is known as the "Active Zone". In order to score, the attacking team is required to complete at least two passes before the "active zone" is opened for a touchdown to be scored. The defending team is required to make only two touches before change of possession can occur.
The fast pace and nature of the game, makes it one of the best ways to get in shape and stay fit.
