This is a club for promoting and playing the sport of Jugger in Dublin, Ireland. Inspired by the 1989 film Salute of the Jugger, the sport is often described as resembling rugby with weapons. Two teams of five start on opposite ends of the pitch. One player from each team, known as the runner, may pick up and handle the ball. The other four players of each team are armed with a variety of padded weaponry, their role is to protect their runner and hit the other team. The sport has been gaining in popularity worldwide, with teams in Ireland, Spain, Germany, America, Australia, Denmark, Costa Rica, Austria and Poland. On September 8th and 9th of 2012, one of the largest Jugger tournaments to date was held in Berlin. 62 teams including including teams from Ireland, Spain and Australia competed over a two-day period, with the Irish placing 4th at the end of tournament. We are hoping to attract more players to join us and share the fun. Try Jugger. Its a great way to see the world, meet new people and then hit them with sticks.
