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.
While in lockdown, we are offering weekly virtual exercise sessions with our coach, Sally every Thursday at 6-7pm - just join our groupchat by following the link in our linktree ( http://linktr.ee/blwfc ) where the Teams link will be posted each Thursday!
As soon as we can safely return, our 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! You first session with us is absolutely free, all you need to bring is comfortable clothing to run around in and football boots if you have them.
Equipment: Comfortable exercise clothes and a mat if you have one for our virtual exercise sessions. Comfortable running clothes and trainers for training sessions. We will provide balls and other equipment required for training sessions.

During lockdown, we are hosting online socials every 2 weeks - ranging from quizzes, bake-alongs and games of Among Us! Links will be posted our our groupchat and instagram!
Our in-person 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 usually participate in the London Universities Sport Leagues (LUSL) - matches take place on Sundays about twice a month.
