What we're about

Menfulness is an inclusive social community for men in York.
Our goal is to bring men together to socialise, exercise, enjoy themselves, talk and let off steam in a non judging, friendly and supportive environment. These are all essential for wellbeing and health, both physical and mental.
The back story to the MEN cube or dice, is that there’s always at least one side you can’t see on a cube or dice. This is a bit like those who men who need help. You often can’t see it because it’s not on show or it’s covered up, so you need to move it some how to uncover it.

Menfulness FootGolf

Needs a location

£10.00

Menfulness FootGolf, is another opportunity to meet with other guys, have a chat, have a laugh (guaranteed!) in a relaxed atmosphere, playing football with a twist... FootGolf!

We've secured a reduced rate of £10pp at York FootGolf, Skelton. This includes ball hire and either a free bottle of beer or soft drink.

As with all Menfulness activities, it's inclusive and accessible to all, where possible.

FootGolf is played on a Golf course using the same rules and scoring system as Golf, the big difference is that you play the game by kicking a football into 20 inch holes rather than using a golf ball and clubs.

You don't need any equipment, any football skills or any previous experience to play. This is what makes FootGolf the sport for everyone!

Why not bring along a friend, neighbour, family member or work collleague, who may welcome this opportunity to socialise?
