Football (BL Women)

About

We are a newly established Barts and the London Sports Club, this being our fourth year as a club! We are excited to present to you a women's sports club which we passionately believe female students at Barts deserve to have.

We are excited to see our club continue to expand and develop, and eager to play and enjoy the sport. We currently take part in competitive university leagues and offer weekly training sessions where ladies at Barts can show off their football skills. 

Our first three years as a club have been hugely successfull, with great results in the LUSL league table, partitipation in the Merger Cup, and a wide variety of social events for our members. 

We welcome players of all abilities from any year, so join us and be part of our women’s football club at Barts!

In addition to our love of the game, we are proud to have created a community within the club, and as such have an exciting social calendar with a wide range of events, including non-drinking socials!

This is an exciting opportunity to expand sports at Barts and provide ladies at our medical school with more opportunities to play sports.

Taster Session

These sessions are absolutely free, all you need to bring is comfortable clothing to run around in and football boots if you have them.

These will take place on the 8th and 22nd of October at 6-7pm at Mile End Play Football (E34HL). You can find sign-up details on our facebook and instagram page, and it is very important you sign-up before attending so we know who is coming!

Training

Training sessions are every Thursday from 6-7pm at Mile End Play Football (E3 4HL). It is a 10 min walk from Mile End station and a 25 min walk from the Barts campus!

Equipment: Comfortable running clothes and trainers for training sessions. For games you will need football boots, shin pads, and comfortable black shorts. We will provide balls and other equipment required for training sessions.

Commitment levels required: Enthusiasm and team participation - commit as much as you can, with the possible interest to join in on our games in the LUSL league.

Competitions

The London Universities Sport Leagues (LUSL) - matches take place on Sundays about twice a month. This year they will only commence after January but we are hopefully organising friendly matches before then. 

Club Socials

Our team socials include Fresher’s curry, tables at the Griff Inn once a fortnight, and team meals such as Christmas dinner and post-match dinners.

We have both drinking and non-drinking events, so everyone is welcome!
