Just Turn up & Play Centres

If you are an individual player or part of a small group of players looking for opportunities to play football, then your best option is to start off by attending a recreational kick about.

Our just turn up & play sessions are held on a weekly or fortnightly basis and usually cost a maximum of £3.00 per session.
There is no long term commitment required, and you can dip in and out of these sessions as you please. The session organiser will provide equipment and organise teams, all you need to do is turn up, have fun and Just Play.

The majority of kick bouts are linked to a competitive league, club or playing opportunity so once you've got a taste for it and would like to get more involved, let your lead organiser know and they'll point you in the right direction.

We offer a range of recreational just turn up & play sessions for youth & adult players, a couple are listed below with more to follow at a later date.

Kari’s Story:

Kari goes to a Lincolnshire Resource Centre four days per week and has very limited movement in her arms and legs.  She has been coming to football for about a year now and first started when free recreational football was offered for over a period of 16-weeks by Lincolnshire County FA through Disability Football Programme to the individuals at the SENSE, centre.

At the beginning, Kari wasn’t quite sure and would not use her arms or a leg, by the time the 12-week period was coming to an end Kari was able to throw the ball and would shout out what was going on throughout the different activities.
The centre have managed to secure extra funding raised by a parent who was enthralled watching their son take part in the sessions, the centre were able to carry on with the recreational football as a Mars just play centre opening out to the other members of the Louth community where Kari was first in line to continue.

Kari really enjoys taking part and now is able to kick the ball when it is placed on her foot plate and can throw the ball quite far.

Favourite activities: Traffic lights
                                   Foxes & Rabbits

Kari now enjoys taking an active role during activities where she is able to communicate to the rest of group during a game of traffic lights. She is always laughing throughout the whole session and goes back home and tells everyone excitedly what she has been doing in her football session.
