Women’s Recreational Football

What is it?

Bromley Belles FC is a women’s recreational football team for women aged 18 and over. Set up in March 2018 with just 12 women attending the first session, we now have nearly 100 women registered. This fantastic project sits as part of the Bromley FC Community Trust with sessions being held every Wednesday evening from 9-10pm, at the community pitches at Bromley FC.

Football is one of the biggest women’s sport in England and there are now more opportunities than ever before to take part in the beautiful game. Aimed at all women aged 18 to over 60s, recreational football is an ideal way to start playing football especially if you have never played before or you have not played for a long time.

Recreational football is about playing football for fun. It’s an opportunity for like-minded women, regardless of age, ability, size and experience to meet up and play football. Recreational football is fun, friendly and sociable. As well as getting active, playing football means you meet new people and become part of a team on and off of the pitch.

Whether you’ve played football before or you’ve never even thought of it. You do not need any previous experience at all to come along!

There are no trials to join the Belles – you just turn up and play. If you would like to watch before attending a session then you are more than welcome to come along and see what we do and meet and chat to the other players. We are very welcoming. Remember most of the Belles were apprehensive or nervous when they first turned up. It’s a big thing to join a new team but we are a very friendly group and love to welcome new people.

The Belles’ sessions lasts one hour and are run by qualified FA coaches who make sure they are fun and improve ability. On arrival you can choose whether you would like a gentle kickaround or one that involves a faster pace. The choice is yours! We finish each session with a game.

You just need to wear normal sports clothes. We play on an astro pitch so you can come along wearing trainers to start off if you do not have football boots. If you have boots then they must be moulded boots. No metal stud boots are permitted on the Astro pitch. Please wear shin pads as well.
