Try a new sport play Gaelic Football

Hi Everyone,

I would like to invite you all to join our Gaelic Football team 'Eindhoven Shamrocks'. Our team has been growing since its establishment last year and our members include Irish, Spanish and Dutch players to name a few. We enjoyed a successful year last year placing 4th in the Benelux league and winning a final tournament in Rovigo last September. Our training sessions run every wednesday on the Eindhoven rugby club grounds. Gaelic football is a fast pace high scoring game that combines a diverse amount of skills making it accessible to anyone with an interest in sports. The club operates an encouraging open door policy and we enjoy getting to share our sport with the international community For those of you who have never heard of the sport here is a video to explain and a short description courtesy of wikipedia:

'Gaelic football (Irish: Peil Ghaelach; short name Peil or Caid), commonly referred to as football or Gaelic,[1] is an Irish team sport. It is a form of football derived from traditional Irish ball games. It is played between two teams of 15 players on a rectangular grass pitch. The objective of the sport is to score points by passing the ball through the other team's goals (3 points) or a set of two upright posts separated by a crossbar 2.5 metres (8.2 ft) above the ground (1 point).

Players advance the football, a spherical leather ball, up the field with a combination of carrying, bouncing, kicking, hand-passing, and soloing (dropping the ball and then toe-kicking the ball upward into the hands). In the game, two types of scores are possible: points and goals. A point is awarded for kicking or hand-passing the ball over the crossbar, signalled by the umpire raising a white flag. A goal is awarded for kicking the ball under the crossbar into the net, signalled by the umpire raising a green flag. Positions in Gaelic football are similar to that in other football codes, and comprise one goalkeeper, six backs, two midfielders, and six forwards, with a variable number of substitutes.'

      Hi David, I would be interested in joining the team but I couldn't make yesterday. It is possible to visit you later (next week)? Also, what does it take to join the team (any specific requirement)?
