Quote from session: "Bags’ sessions are relaxed, friendly and informal with a focus on getting fit, having fun and making friends. You don’t need to have played football before. The joy of the sessions is in not thinking about anything else for an hour. Everyone will make you feel welcome and encourage you to play and join in. It’s literally the best thing ever for both body and mind.”
Women's Futsal League
Futsal is a fast-paced fun versions of indoor 5-a-side football that originated in Brazil.
The rules and equipment focus on ball skills, movement and quick passing. It’s a lot of fun and incredibly popular in Brazil, Spain, Italy and as player development for professional football clubs etc. In Kent we have a Women’s Futsal League that play on a regular basis and have a league setup as well as a recreational turn up and play session for those not ready to compete just yet.
