Recreational football is simple concept, it’s about playing football for the love of the game rather than competition. It’s an organised meet up with some mates for a kickabout, if you don’t have any mates in the area it’s a great way to make some.
Each venue has it’s own league, unlike some leagues ours are set up so you play for yourself rather than a team, this means you don’t need to rely on a team of mates who can play each week. The games are set up so you play when you want so it fits around family and work commitments, new players are always welcome to join at any point in the season.
Players need to be over 18 years old but all shapes, sizes, fitness levels and skill levels are welcome .
