futsal

hello, we are the essex blades futsal club


Futsal is a fast-paced, five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a size four ball with a reduced bounce.  It is played to touchlines and all players are free to enter the penalty area and play the ball over head-height.  Games are 20 minutes per half, played to a stopping clock (similar to basketball) with time-outs permitted. Most goals scored, wins.
