Inspired by the Olympics to take up a new sport or return to one you used to enjoy? Here's how to get involved
Women's football was one of the big successes of London 2012, with Team GB's female players capturing the hearts and imagination of enthusiasts and non-footie fans alike.
We're hoping it might prove a turning point in the game, which is already growing in popularity among younger girls. In the meantime, if you’d like to get on the pitch, but aren't convinced you're ready to commit to playing regularly with one particular team, you can still get involved.
The FA’s scheme called ‘Just Play! Kickabouts‘ are designed for anyone who wants to play casually, without any obligations to train on a regular basis or even play for the whole one-hour session. It doesn’t matter how much or how little experience you’ve had – anyone over the age of 16 is welcome. Check out The FA’s ‘My Football’ website for more information, and to search for a club near you.
