SC Waldgirmes is a German association football club from Waldgirmes, Hesse. The 700 member club is best known for its football team, but also has departments for table tennis, women’s gymnastics, alpine gymnastics, and cycling.
The association was founded in 1929 as SG Waldgirmes. As a worker’s side the club was banned for political reasons when the Nazis came to power in 1933 and a number of the footballers left for TV 05 Waldgirmes where they formed a football department. After World War II occupying Allied authorities banned all organizations in the country including sports and football associations. SG Waldgirmes was re-established in the summer of 1945 as a general community sports association. In 1948 the football side went its own way as the independent club FC Waldgirmes until being re-united with its parent in 1952 to form SC Waldgirmes.
