Recreational Football

What is Women’s recreational football?

It is football that is based around fun, fitness, and friends. It is commitment free and aimed at women aged 16 and above. It can be walking football, exercise sessions that include a ball, coached sessions for beginners, a small sided kickabout – it literally is ‘play your way’. It isn’t weekly training and a competitive match on a weekend with a team that is part of a league. 

Every single session will look and feel different, the key is to tailor the session to what the women want. It’s a bit of a blank page, let them write whatever makes them happy and keeps them returning.

The next year and beyond is going to see many more ‘Play Your Way’ sessions popping up over the county but we thought you’d want to take a look and see where your nearest session is, you know, so you can be ahead the curve. 

Your first port of call to find sessions is England Football’s Find Football page, which can be found here: (https://www.englandfootball.com/play/home) 

If you check out our map and/or calendar below, you’ll see details of all the different sessions currently on offer and we’ll keep updating you on our webpage and socials in terms of new sessions starting up.
