What we're about

Your first game is free of charge to see how you find us but most who come tend to come again but there is no pressure to join. You can either pay an ad hoc £5 per game or £25 for a bargain block of 10 games (should you decide to sign up as a regular subject to these places become available - they normally do after not too long as players leave for work or personal reasons).

This is a group to help men get fit and lose weight (or to help maintain fitness) by having a kick-around with a group of friendly lads with the emphasis very much on on having fun. We try to win but that is definitely not the most important thing.

The main target group is men in their 40's and 50'+. We have a few younger players who don't have the confidence or energy to play in typical 5 a side leagues, or are fat and/or unfit but still very welcome so long as the spirit of group is respected (i.e. not over competitive and flying or hard tackles) Genuinely, all abilities very welcome (including if you are a decent player, not played in years or were always last pick in school days with no confidence!).

10 to 14 players usually play and we informally pick sides. We mix it up half way through and start another game if one side is getting hammered.

NB. This MeetUp Group is simply to top up the number of players and is currently organised in a Facebook Group. As such, should there appear to none or few players signed up that is normal. Once you tick I will be in touch to give you full details going forward.

Hope to hear from you and see you at a game some time soon! :-)

Upcoming events (5+)

Join Facebook group that organises footie each week on a Thursday evening at 8pm

Manchester Tennis and Football Centre

Should you be seriously interested tick to join for this week and I will be in touch to move you onto our private Facebook group. Initially, there is no guarantee of a game and you will play only as places become available (most weeks especially in summer) when regulars cannot play. First game you try out is FOC then £5 each time. At some point most casuals are offered a 'regular' guaranteed place as regulars leave for personal reasons (e.g. moving away from the area). The cost is then charged up front for 10 weeks (so we can secure the pitch) but then works out at half the price if attending all games. Any queries drop me a line, Cheers Colin
