Aussie rules Peckham

If you can’t make a girl come why even bother? That always seemed to me to be like writing questions in a letter.

A Peckham-based Aussie Rules team is looking for players. Marianna writes:

The South East London Giants are an Australian Rules Football ("AFL") team whose home ground is Peckham Rye Common.  The club has been running for 2 years very successfully with its biggest achievements being the running of a London wide pre-season cup on Peckham Rye, playing in the social league 2014 Grand Final and winning 2014 Club of the Year in only its second year as an established club. The club is now looking to expand on its success by introducing a women's competition and setting up a women's team to compete in the 2015 season.

Australian Rules Football is played on an oval ground with an oval ball (similar to rugby) and has 18 people per team. South East London Giants are looking for women with any level of experience (never seen the game to people that may know and have played the game) to give this unique sport a go. We have a great team on hand to help people learn the rules of the game and develop the relevant skills so people shouldn't worry too much about not knowing the sport.  The club is not about winning it's about giving it a go, having a good time and meeting new people.

We are looking to start pre season training in February 2015 with the aim of playing our first game in April 2015.  If anyone is interested in giving this fun game and different way of keeping fit a go they can contact me either by e-mail ( or phone (07742802536).
