Welcome to the home of the Green Bridge Hurling Club "Gnarly Geckos" (Brunswick-Topsham Maine USA)

Visit our sponsor!


*Summer 2017 pickup is done for the year, thanks for coming out!  To get notified about a viewing party for Hurling In Fenway on November 19, follow the facebook page or get on the email list if you are not already (contact greenbridgehurling at gmail dot com )


What's 3000 years old, involves a crazy combination of lacrosse, baseball, hockey and soccer skills, and is incredibly fun?   The Irish sport of Hurling!  (traditional Irish field hockey).   

Here is a cool highlight reel video to show you what is possible:  hurling highlight reel    

Here is a more in-depth "how to play" video:  "Hurling 101"   

At GBHC we value playing safe, competing hard but remembering it's just a game, and trying to get the hang of one of the most challenging sports in the world.    

Want to give it a shot?  Come join us for one of our weekly pickup games in the summer (times up in the "upcoming events" section  at the top of the page).   No experience required.  We've got some loaner sticks for you to try it out, you just need to bring a caged helmet (eg lax or hockey).   

Want your own stick?  The all wood sticks are lighter, less expensive and frankly cooler; the composite sticks have a bigger sweet spot and are more durable.  In either case, Stephen at American Hurling Co will treat you right!
