You can sign up on the FA 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.

Walking sports programme
Walking sports are traditional sports played at a slower, walking pace. This means they are accessible to older people, people who thought they could never play again due to injury, age or medical condition or people that have never played before but would like to start something social, fun and enjoyable.
Since 2014 Wiltshire Council has worked with Wiltshire FA and local partners to deliver walking football sessions around the county. Playing the game at walking pace is a fantastic way to keep fit, it reduces the chance of injury and falls and also is a great way to meet new and like-minded people.
For latest news, information and updates have a look at the Wiltshire Walking Football on Facebook page.
