Our Team Talk football session is a mixed ability open session for men, for anyone who is struggling with their mental health and wants to come and enjoy a game of football with their peers.

It doesn’t matter how good you are if you like playing football and want to meet new people this is the session for you.

Players who attend are split into teams, and a competitive but friendly/managed game is played for the hour.

(If we don’t have volunteers for goalkeepers, we encourage players to take turns if they are comfortable)

Parking is available in the Stacey West Car Park.

Positively Impact your Mental Health With Sport

Even short bursts of regular exercise has a proven positive impact on mental health. Which is why joining us for Community Football could be the first step for better mental health for you. Here are just a few ways in which sport and physical activity can positively impact your mental health.

  • Improve your Mood: Exercise releases feel-good hormones, which tell your brain to improve your mood. Recent studies showed that people who categorised themselves as feeling low noted a significant improvement in mood after they undertook physical activity.

  • Reduce Stress: People who partake in regular physical activity often have lower stress levels.

  • Increase Self Esteem: Exercise can often help you to feel better about yourself.

  • Tackle Depression and Anxiety: GP's often prescribe regular exercise as part of a Mental Health programme to help sufferers of Depression and Anxiety. Taking part in regular activity and sport empowers individuals to self manage their recovery.

  • Sleep Better: Physical Activity will help to tire you out during the day and therefore help you to get a better nights sleep.

  • Connect with new people: Sporting activities provide the opportunity to connect with like-minded new people, without the pressure of finding a common ground.
