Football has the power to unite communities and improve the health of a nation. And more women than ever are reaping the benefits of taking part in the beautiful game.
But football doesn’t just mean your typical elevena- side competitive matches – not everyone has the time, commitment or desire to join a club or channel their inner Millie Bright. Some just want to kick their fitness into shape and recreational football is a great way to get involved away from competitive leagues and be part of the camaraderie that comes with team sports.
Whether it’s been months or years since you last played, or you’ve never kicked a ball in your life, women’s recreational football sessions can improve your fitness, boost your mental health, develop new friendships, and give you the confidence to get back into sport
