Social Gaelic Football


Gaelic football is a mishmash of AFL, rugby, soccer, basketball and netball all in one. Sound like a bit of you? Great – because we host a social 9-a-side Gaelic football tournament in Wellington over the summer months. It’s fun, friendly and suitable for all levels of experience. We also like to enjoy a beer and a snag from the BBQ after game. It’s is a great opportunity for beginners who are brand new to Gaelic Football.

2020/21 Socials fixtures and results
