Promoting Touch

New Zealander Miles Darby, 46, IT project manager at Credit Suisse Singapore, is also president of the city’s amateur Monsoon Touch Football Club. Darby has been playing the sport in Singapore for over a decade at Turf City with his fellow team-mates as a member of the Touch team from the Wanderers Rugby Football Club. He told The Electric New Paper what the aim of forming such a club is: “Well, I think we needed structure. Touch football suites all ages, shapes, and sizes, and all can enjoy playing the sport because many different levels are catered for – from social to serious, from young to not so young. The aim is to provide an environment for high performance, so individuals and teams can excel.”
