Community Kickabout

Community Kickabout is a small-sided football session for Over 30’s and is part of our fitness initiative, organised by the TSC in partnership with Hemel Hempstead Town FC and supported by a Community Grant from Dacorum Borough Council.

Our sessions take place on the main pitch at Hemel Hempstead Town FC, Vauxhall Road, which is FIFA Pro standard all-weather artificial grass; our matches are an easy, affordable (£5) and friendly opportunity for anyone to get active (not just TSC members or Hemel FC fans).

The session is for people aged over 30 because cardiovascular disease in people aged between 30 and 74 in Dacorum is statistically significantly higher than the averages for England and Hertfordshire and around 50,000 residents aged 50 and above suffer from a long-term health problem or disability. Our aim is to encourage participation amongst our community; whilst this is an initiative of the Tudor Supporters Club, anyone is welcome to participate (albeit we will subsidise the costs for our members).

There is compulsory use of the correct footwear as directed by Hemel FC for their new artificial surface – Football Boots with moulded plastic studs are preferred.  Please be aware that bladed boots of any description, metal studs, metal tipped studs and flat soled trainers are not permitted.
