Organise your team with a simple click!

If you organise a team at Willows then you might be interested in the new features available to you as a user of our website.

Simply add your players to your team profile and let our system contact them via email to alert them to an upcoming fixture and ask them their availability!

No more Post-It notes, text messages lost or emails deleted; everything is centralised to make light of your task.

When players update their availability for a fixture, it all appears on your profile and you can see exactly who can play, and who can’t.

The system will remind players of upcoming games after your last fixture and a day before it takes place; it does the hard work for you!

Furthermore, if you need a player or two to make up the numbers, you can find ‘Ringers’ through our website with just a couple of clicks!

Our fixture reminders are now live, so get your players’ details added and start making your life easier ….

For more details of how to use the system contact us at the centre today!

Fancy a game?!

If you don’t have a team to play for, or would like to play more, register as a ringer and let teams find you!

Simply register on our site by clicking the ‘start playing now’ link and we’ll add you to our player database. You will then get an email asking you to validate your email address and then from there you can build your profile and state your preferences. Then just sit back and let the offers roll in!

Walk this Way! You’re never too old to play …

Walking Football is one of the latest crazes in the football world. It is an activity that gives those that have given up the chance to get back into the sport they love.

Derby Willow Walkers - P1060516

As you’ve guessed Walking Football involves a lot of… well… walking. It carries all the same rules as every day football except you can’t pick up too much speed. It provides a sociable, fun and safe environment for those looking to be a little more active in their spare time.

Guidelines for Sessions

  • Players are encouraged to avoid sprinting, running or jogging while the ball is in play
  • Anyone doing so is penalised with a free-kick awarded to the other team
  • If the ball goes off the pitch over the touchline, the game is restarted via a kick, roll or throw-in (to allow for different physical capabilities)
  • It can be played indoors or outdoors
  • Numbers per team are dependent on the number of participants at each session
  • No pitch size/surface constraints – dependent on venue

Variations and game adaptations can be made to suit participants’ needs and capabilities.
