Manchester Talk & Football

16 , November , 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

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 Club’s to provide men with an opportunity to talk, listen and play football. Each session will start and finish simply with the question “How are you? Out of 10?” 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 “How are you? Out of 10?” 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 “How are you? Out of 10?” It’s simple, but effective. Please join us.
