You can sign up on the Just Play website or simply turn up at your chosen session.
The FA Mars Just Play programme gives the casual footballer aged 16 and over a chance to just turn up to a venue and play football. The Just Play kickabout is recreational football at its best – it’s about turning up for an hour of exercise and a bit of fun. It is football for those who can’t or don’t want to commit to an eight month season of matches and training. Just Play sessions are being delivered weekly at venues across Wiltshire. You can come on your own or with friends.
For more information about the Just Play Football programme please contact Wiltshire FA’s Football Development Officer Chloe Buller - chloe.buller@wiltshirefa.com or 01793 486047
