Women & Non-Binary Social Footy

"Women & non-binary social football sessions began with the aim of addressing the lack of opportunities for cis and trans women and non-binary people to try football in a relaxed and non-competitive setting.

Each week we offer a fun, supportive and pressure-free environment to try football and improve skills. Whilst we are more than happy for people to stick with our sessions, we would also love for them to act as a spring board for those who grow in confidence and experience to get out there and access more opportunities to play football."
