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

*Summer pickup games - Monday evenings, 6:30PM, Foreside Fields in Topsham.  All ages, "Summer rules" (youth soccer goals, no overs, shots from the hand must be bounce shots (for goalie's safety)).*

*Need a stick?   GBHC recommends a composite stick, it seems to handle the Maine weather better than ash.  These guys will treat you right:


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 great intro-to-the-sport video:  video montage of hurling action.  

Here is a great "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).   Middle school through adult, co-ed, no experience required.  We've got some loaner sticks for you to try it out.  You just need a caged helmet (eg lax or hockey) to play in the pickup game.  

Once you try it, you will undoubtedly want your own "hurley" (stick) so you can get in on the fun without waiting (and be able to knock it around at home with friends and family - but mind the windows!).  Check with Greg, we usually carry an inventory of bulk order sticks and balls.   Or buy a first quality stick from one of our suppliers - see the Buying and caring for a "hurley" (stick) tab at left.
