hello, we are the essex blades futsal club
A word from our president
Hello and welcome to any new and returning players!
Futsal is an indoor team game played with many of the same rules as football. It involves two teams of 5 players each attempting to score the most goals and is played on an indoor futsal pitch under stop clock timed conditions. Futsal offers the chance for new players and current footballers to improve their fitness, ball control and quick thinking. If your a football fan your guaranteed to enjoy this indoor, fast-paced alternative. Please keep an eye on this page for upcoming information on trials and training sessions for the new academic year. Any questions please email me at email@example.com. I look forward to seeing you soon!
