    A little-known fact about Suzhou – it has its own Gaelic Football Club. Gaelic Football is played by teams of 9 on a rectangular grass pitch with H-shaped goals at each end. The primary object is to score by kicking or striking the ball with the hand and getting it through the goals. The team with the highest score at the end of the match wins. Players advance the ball up the field with a combination of carrying, soloing (dropping and then toe-kicking the ball upward into the hands), kicking, and hand-passing to their team-mates. The Suzhou Gaelic Football Club meets for practice twice a week, usually one weeknight after work and on Saturday afternoons.

    Men and women at all levels, as well as beginners, are welcome to join.  Trainings twice-weekly; Tuesday evenings and on Saturday afternoons. E-mail for confirmation of times and locations.
