What we’re about

Welcome to Terrible Football London!

Have you always wanted to play football, but are too intimidated to join a local Sunday League team, or don’t want to fork out cash for a five-a-side on astro turf? Fancy a relaxed kick about in the park? Want to have a relaxed kick about, and a couple of beers after? Then Terrible Football is for you!

At Terrible football, anyone can play (18+): any ability, and any gender. Terrible Football is about miss kicked clearances, sweet half volleys and desperate diving saves. We play in the rain, sun or snow. It's completely free, and always will be. It's open, inclusive and Terrible. All sessions are on grass and its advisable to wear studs in the wet season. <br>


We currently host 5 sessions every week:

• Clapham Common - Weekdays (Different days, keep an eye on the calendar!), Saturdays (10:30AM Kick-Off) & Sundays (11:00AM Kick-Off)

• Weavers Fields - Sundays (01:00PM Kick-Off)

• Tooting Bec Common - Saturdays (10:30AM Kick-Off)


In order to play, all you need to do is RSVP and turn up on the day. If you turn up but aren't on the list, there might be a chance of being turned away as we are limited to space and equipment. We aim to start on time so if you arrive and we've started you'll have to sit out the first game and wait for an organiser to put you in a team. In order to stay up to date with last minute changes, we suggest you join our WhatsApp group. Please feel free and ask an organiser to add you. Lastly, Terrible Football is for free, we don’t charge, however, if you are a regular, we do ask you to donate some money once or twice a year for the upkeep and new equipment.
