Come for a kickabout in the county
1:48pm Friday 4th April 2014 in News
Football-mad adults who don’t have time to commit to a club are invited to drop by for a kickabout at one of four Wiltshire leisure centres this summer.
Wiltshire County FA and Wiltshire Council have joined forces to deliver the FA Mars Just Play centres for adults across the county.
The Just Play kickabout programme will be on at Devizes, Amesbury, Tidworth and Tisbury leisure centres from this month.
People can turn up in groups or as individuals to play a match for an hour at a time and at a venue which suits them.
Each leisure centre will deliver themes of the game from male and female only, to the Futsal format of the small sided game.
Tim Hall, football development officer at Wiltshire County FA said: “It is fantastic that the county Football Association and Wiltshire Council have been able to work together to create new opportunities for participants within the county to play recreational football.
“We are fully aware that the commitment of playing affiliated football is becoming more of a barrier to participants and the creation of the casual kickabouts will offer those participants the chance to play the game again.
“We encourage all people whether they have played the game before or wish to start playing the game to get along to one of the kickabout sessions.”
