The Just Play initiative has been launched by The Football Association with Mars and aims to get more people around the country playing football recreationally by providing fun and casual football at a time and place to suit your lifestyle.
Just Play sessions are for anyone, male or female, over the age of 16 who is interested in playing football on a casual basis to keep fit, have fun and participate in a competitive match at the end of every session. Sessions will have a range of activities to participate in to suit what you want and will be run by qualified Just Play Organisers.
Sessions last for about an hour but Just Play focuses on what’s convenient for you, so you can play for as long or as little as you want. So if turning up every week isn’t convenient for your lifestyle you can simply book and turn up when you have the time.
All you need to bring is shin pads, comfortable footwear and some enthusiasm to get stuck in and have a kick about whilst making new friends at the same time.
Prices for sessions will cover the organisational costs and will typically range from 50p to £3.50 depending on the size of the group who turn up.
To find out more about Just Play and to register at session in your local area visit the Just Play website and enter your postcode in the ‘start playing’ section on the right hand side.
You can then register with your closest venue and reserve your place for the session you want. After registering you can then simply rebook your place when you next want to play, simple!
