We play the original beautiful game. And it's the most fun you'll ever have participating in a sport. Promise. 

Irish (Gaelic) football is now one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. And you can play it, too. Join us for fun drop-in matches nearly every weekend. And yeah, it's absolutely free. 

The sport's incredible growth makes sense: There's lots of scoring, and it combines a range of sports (soccer, basketball, ruby, volleyball, team handball) for an amazing workout.

There are countless reasons why Irish football is a blast, including...you can use your hands (that's right, we're looking at you, soccer); it's a great workout; it combines all of your favorite sports and a few you never considered; and, at least with our club, we play co-ed matches.

We have fun, every week, without fail. Our club has everyone from teens to, um...people who don't bring up their age any longer.

Kids are always welcome to join us on the pitch. Best news: They'll have a league of their own this fall! Fairfax Police Youth Club begins an Irish football program in September, the first of its kind in the DC region.

Here's a guarantee: If you come out and play, you'll be hooked—for life. The sport delivers, and our club is filled with great people who simply want to have some weekend fun while competing.
