Gaelic Football (Men's)

 

Welcome to University of Nottingham Gaelic Football

Gaelic Football is a fast, rough and exciting sport, relying on a skilful combination of kicking and handling. Originiating in Ireland as one of the Gaelic Games, there are hundreds of years of sporting herirage behind the sport. The popularity of the sport is ever growing and is now being played all over the world.

The heart of the GAA is the community spirit on which the sport was founded, something which we strive to recreate here at Nottingham. Within the university, we are closely affiliated with the Irish Society, whom we regularly share social events with, which helps to promote the community feel. Furthermore, we have a good relationship with the local GAA team here in Nottingham, St Barnabas, who help us out with training sessions and on match days. 

We pride ourselves on being a club and indeed a sport open to all, it's not just a sport for people with connections to Ireland, our club has players from a number of different backgrounds. Again in terms of experience, a significant number of players and also committee members played the sport for the first time at University so if you've never played or even heard of the sport that's no problem whatsoever.
