Social GAA is an opportunity for anyone who does not currently represent a club on the field of play to participate in a fun, non-competitive environment. It offers fun, enjoyment, exercise, health and fitness; a social outlet, friendships; an opportunity for past players/members to get reacquainted with their club. There isincidental contact only, no shouldering andtwo touches maximum (one solo and/or one bounce); whoever is fouled takes the free; teams are 7-a-side with a panel of 10. The entry fee £50 a team (£5 a player) includes entertainment, hot buffet & presentation after the event. All players are informed that they will not be covered by any insurance policy (unless they have their own private insurance) if they get injured; you play at your own risk, the incidental contact only rule is applied to lower the risk of injury.
