Whether you enjoy playing with your mates, want to get fitter or enjoy the competitive side of football, then joining your local five-a-side league at Score Football Centres is a great idea.

We’ve covered some of the reasons why our leagues are great before, but this time we’re going to explain how football can be good for both your physical and mental health.

Team Building Skills

Collaborating with four unfamiliar individuals is certain to enhance your ability to build effective teams. Through shared activities with your peers, you’ll gain insights into leveraging your strengths and assisting others in overcoming their weaknesses. These invaluable skills can be applied to various aspects of your life.


Mental Health Improvement

Many men find it difficult to convey their emotions. Football provides a safe place for releasing these emotions, while also fostering the development of new friendships and the nurturing of camaraderie, all of which are essential for preserving one’s mental well-being.

Improve Your Fitness

Playing in a five-a-side league  least once or twice a week allows you to engage in enjoyable exercise without consciously recognizing it. Over time, you can expect to notice improvements in your endurance, agility, speed, flexibility, and general fitness. Incorporating regular stretching routines before and after matches can contribute to better muscle health and posture as well.

Our Five-A-Side Leagues

We run leagues on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Each league consists of six teams with both our Monday and Wednesday leagues having multiple divisions that include promotion and relegation after a 10 game season. Upon registration we will grade your team to ensure you join a division that suits you and your team mates.
