How to build GAA Goal Posts

GAA Goal posts are unique in the fact that they are a combination of soccer goals with rugby post uprights. While in Ireland every club has sets (more or less) for senior men, ladies, and youth and indeed may have sets of mobile goalposts available for different off-site events, as it stands, in the developing regions and clubs of Iberia many clubs are not long enough established to have had the opportunity to invest in this important part of the club equipment portfolio.

In order to help with the cost and obvious disadvantage of not having these available we have put together a cost effective suggestion on how to get your club a new set of goals that can be both versatile, mobile and convenient.

Option 1 – PVC tubes and a little cutting!

The goals can be constructed with PVC tubes that can be bought at a large local building suppliers.
