Gaelic football is a mishmash of AFL, rugby, soccer, basketball and netball all in one. Sports which hurling/camogie resemble are field hockey and lacrosse. Sound like a bit of you?
Great – because we host a social Gaelic football and 'hurlogie' (hurling/camogie) tournament in Wellington over the summer months. These summer sports are fun, friendly and suitable for all levels of experience. Following the games, we like to enjoy a beer and a snag from the BBQ after game. It’s a great opportunity for people who are brand new to Gaelic games.
The 2021/22 social Gaelic football and 'hurlogie' season finished on 12 February 2022. The next season will begin in November 2022. But it's never too early to sign up.
Everyone is welcome! If you’ve never played Gaelic games before, this is a great time to start.
You’re right – Gaelic games are amazing. You can sign up through our registration form.
The cost is $60 per season. If you’ve paid full-year ($130) or half-year ($80) club membership* for 2021/22, then it’s all included. The money collected will go towards the running costs of the tournament including pitch hire, footballs, bibs etc.
