⚽ Rye Kicks & Dulwich Hamlets ⚽
Come down to Peckham Rye for a kick of the Sherrin followed by an afternoon at Champion Hill to cheer on our local football team the Dulwich Hamlets. It is a great venue to watch live sport and enjoy a beverage. We will also have informal off-season training on Saturdays from 11am. Details on TeamApp.
These are great opportunities to invite future Giants down for a taste of what AFL and our club is all about so bring your friends, flatmates & dates!
