Join us to talk and play football every Thursday at **Burnage Rugby Club, Battersea Road, Stockport SK4 3EA**. Players of all ages, abilities, backgrounds are welcome – it doesn’t matter how much or how little you’ve played before we look forward to seeing you there!
Manchester FA are starting Talk & Football Clubâ€™s to provide men with an opportunity to talk, listen and play football. Each session will start and finish simply with the question â€œHow are you? Out of 10?â€ allowing participants to check in with how they feel before playing.
Everyone attending will be welcomed by the Talk Club captain, Joe who is a volunteer. Talk & Football Club is a talking group rather than a therapy group, each person will be asked to simply answer the question â€œHow are you? Out of 10?â€ and share why whilst everyone else listens respectfully.
Sharing might not be easy at first, but we hope Talk & Football Club will improve your mental fitness and ability to share and talk about how your are feeling. Everything shared within Talk & Football Club remains confidential, we want to build trusting relationships within the group.
After everyone has shared their scores, we will split everyone into 2 teams and play 5-a-side football for the remainder of the session. Finally, before everyone departs, we all check out. Again answering the question â€œHow are you? Out of 10?â€ Itâ€™s simple, but effective. Please join us.
