Established in spring 2017, Football for Fathers is a community based club for football-loving Dads based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
Football for Fathers is a members-only club, and we run football sessions on a weekly basis for Dads of all abilities, aged 30 and above, as well as tournaments and social events. Through activities, sponsorship and our members' generous donations we also support local good causes and charities in and around Hitchin.
In under two years Football for Fathers has evolved from seven mates playing 'jumpers for goalposts' in the park to 130+ signed-up members playing competitive football together across four weekly sessions.
Our founding principles of inclusivity, wellbeing, enjoyment, community spirited and health and safety ensure our membership of busy Hitchin Dads all enjoy the benefits of regular football and team spirit, with a few pints thrown in for good measure...
Our 2019 Members' Survey, completed by 80% of our members, highlighted the enormous benefits being part of Football for Fathers can provide.

Due to the popularity of our existing 9-10pm sessions on Monday and Wednesday we're starting up a new session on Tuesday evenings, which will commence on Tuesday 17th September.
This session will cost £60.00 per quarter / £240.00 per year and equates approximately to £4.80 per hour-long, weekly football session. As with all sessions it is open to players of all abilities aged 30+. (We provide a discount of £40 for members paying for a year in advance).
Pre-Register via the form on our Sessions page.
