What we're about
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 the neighbourhood after the games.
The idea is to gather at least 20 people to form 4 teams of 5 players (or 5 teams of 5 players when we are more than 25). Due to the increased popularity of the group, 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!
It would be great if you could have at least an intermediate level of football, 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 start playing football as complete beginners: https://www.meetup.com/football5asidecoaching.
PS: the group was originally for French speakers/learners but speaking French is no longer a requirement as we couldn't get enough people to play on a weekly basis. You may just hear some beautiful words such as "PUTAIN DE BORDEL DE MERDE!!" when somebody misses a shot...
