Kuwait Harps 2015The Kuwait Harps GAA Club holds weekly training sessions for both Men and Women on Fridays at 6PM and Wednesdays at 10AM for women andnoon for men at the American International School in Maidan Hawally. We compete primarily in tournaments based in the Gulf region. The newly re-established club is focused on providing proper facilities to enjoy Gaelic Games and social events in terms of tournaments, training sessions and outings. New players are always welcome and immediately feel at home within the club. The majority of the current squad were actually new to Gaelic Games when they first arrived in Kuwait.

Kuwait Harps are renowned for the International dimension to their various squads. While many clubs in the Gulf region can depend on a strong pool of Irish players, this is not the case in Kuwait. While a core of the club may be Irish, it relies heavily on the support of players from the international expat community. Kuwait Harps Players have come from Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Canada, USA, Australia and even Sudan to name but a few countries.

The club will offer two kids clinics during the year with Harps members. They will teach the kids the rules and skills of the game followed by a kids tournament. They will be placed on teams with children from other schools and compete in several games. This will be a great way for them to practice the skills they have learned with new friends.

The team will be traveling to Qatar, Oman, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Bahrain for tournaments this year. Last year, we competed in the first annual GAA World Games in Abu Dhabi. That same year, our ladies A team won the Intermediate League and will be promoted for the following year.

The Harps offer a great and unique opportunity to meet new people, exercise, learn a new sport and travel throughout the Gulf region.
