What is the EUWAFC Recreational Programme?
In 2015, EUWAFC started a Recreational Football Programme to run alongside our three University Squads, allowing girls of all ability to play football in a more relaxed and less competitive environment.
It is the first ever Women's Intramural 5-a-side football League at Edinburgh university, launched by the Sports Union as part of a campaign to expand the opportunities available for women in sport.
Recreational players are organised into teams that enter into the league and play 50-minute matches every Saturday morning at the Peffermill 5-a-side pitches. Each year the number of teams entered into the league has grown
It’s a really fun way of getting out in the fresh air at the weekend, meeting new people and is perfect for improving your skills or learning as a beginner! It is also an excellent opportunity for people looking to be involved with the club but who can't commit to training twice a week and weekly matches with a squad.
Winners of the Leagues (one per semester) are announced at the end of each semester!
