Come play 5-a-side football every Sunday on a 3G pitch in Shoreditch. Weather is usually good and we always go out for drinks/food in a pub after the games.
The format of the games is simple: 5 teams of 6 players taking part in a round robin tournament. Due to the increased popularity of the group (we always have people on the waiting list), we won't accept people who take less than 30s to answer the questions on their profile (sorry but according to our experience that tells a lot about future commitment!) or who cannot play on a more or less regular basis. We will also have to remove or ban for a couple of games any member who pulls out last minute from a game without letting us know. We really want to only have active members in the group i.e. people who want to play and who answer our messages! This is why we do not have as many members as some other football meetup groups, we have to book pitches every week so everyone should be committed, that's the idea!
We've also started organising monthly tournaments, the last one had 50 attendees with 8 teams of 6 players...and we hope to get even more people the next time around!
It would be great if you could have at least an intermediate level of football to join this group, just so that you make the most of it as our members are rather competitive, even for a Sunday afternoon! We have created another football group for beginners/intermediate players who would like to improve their skills or even just learn how to play football: https://www.meetup.com/football5asidecoaching.
