Next week’s session is during the same week as International Women’s Day and we’re going to celebrate the continued development of our Ladies only sessions by allowing players to register for free! We’re very grateful to the support of local company Sterling Accounting Solutions Ltd, who are sponsoring this session so we can provide this game at no cost to the players.
Since we launched our Ladies only sessions in August 2022, we’ve organised 20 games, with over 30 Ladies joining in during that time. Providing equal access to girls football and organising football for the community are part of the FA ‘s transformational objectives aiming to be achieved by 2024 as part of the FA’s Women and Girls Football Strategy; we’re delighted to be able to offer these sessions after running popular men’s games for so long.
In August 2022, after running popular Men’s Over 30’s Football games for two years and in an attempt to grow our sessions on the back of the Lionesses Euros success, we trialled some Ladies only sessions at Hemel Hempstead Town FC. We had a fantastic response and have organised regular sessions since. We were awarded a grant from the Barclays Community Football Fund, delivered in parnership with Sported to help us commit to providing weekly recreational football sessions to Ladies living in and around Dacorum as part of our Community Kickabout initiative. We have since received further support from Dacorum Borough Council’s Active Dacorum grant scheme.
Subject to online booking to confirm availability, ladies can just play in our friendly small-sided games – you don’t need to rely on having enough players to book your own pitch or even be part of your own team, just register and play!
Our sessions take place on FIFA Pro standard all-weather artificial grass at Hemel Hempstead Town FC, Vauxhall Road; our matches are an easy, affordable and friendly opportunity for anyone to get active. Check out our Feedback page to read what our participants have said about our session.
