This is an already established pick up game that happens every saturday. There are usually between 14 and 16 people that come that are not on this website. Everyone is welcome to join us so long as you have a good attitude, and are a good sport.
• What we'll do
All levels welcome, friendly players encouraged. This is a friendly and very international co-ed pickup game, which has been going steadily since the 1970s or earlier.
We start as early as 10AM, usually 10:30 or 11am, and continue playing until 1pm or so. You can come and go as is convenient for you, although it's a sharper game if you come early. We do start late sometimes, so hang out till at least 11:00 if you don't see a game.
The play can change day to day, but week in week out it's a fairly skilled group some quick passing and fast runs - and at least a handful of beautiful crosses. We play with pop-up goals and no keepers. It's fantastic game to hone your passing vision or step up your defensive awareness. We don't do slide tackles, and although challenges do happen in the game, injuries are rare. It's a great vibe.
A dedicated group usually shows up every week that has been playing together for weeks, months - even years. Come join us!
At Willard Park, 2730 Hillegass Ave, Berkeley, CA 94705. (near intersection of Telegraph Avenue and Hillegass Avenue).
