If you are an individual player or part of a small group of players looking for opportunities to play football, then your best option is to start of by attending a recreational kickabout.
Kickabouts are held on a weekly or fortnightly basis and usually cost a maximum of £5 per session. It's football in all formats including futsal, beach soccer, soccercise and walking football. There is no long term commitment required, and you can dip in and out of these sessions as you please. The session organiser will provide equipment and organise teams, all you need to do is turn up, have fun and Just Play.
The majority of kickabouts are linked to a competitive league, club or playing opportunity so once you've got a taste for it and would like to get more involved, let your lead organiser know and they'll point you in the right direction.
We offer a range of recreational kickabouts for players aged 14+, some of which are listed below. For up to date information on the times and locations of sessions, please browse the map at the top of the page.
