Non-competitive football (soccer) @ Ostpark – Fri 17:00
** For casual players, beginners, post-injured, and people who can t play well – ALL LEVELS AND GENDERS WELCOME! **
Please join us for a casual, non-competitive session of football (soccer) in the Ostpark (likely just outside the Theatron im Ostpark).
The idea is to have a welcoming atmosphere to anyone and everyone—of any skill level and gender—so we will keep physical contact to a minimum (aim for the ball, not the person).
Beginners, those with old injuries they wouldn t want to risk reviving in a more serious game, those who like to play but are not great at it, and anyone who would just like to kick the ball around in a friendly environment, is very welcome to join.
In the same spirit, competitiveness will also be kept to a minimum, so we will rearrange teams freely during the game, make unscheduled breaks for water, and we probably won t even bother keeping a score. Rest assured, though: there will be plenty of running around and football-kicking, but hopefully not a lot of shoving or tackling.
So, please join us if you re not that great at football, if you have an old (minor) injury that you don t want to risk reviving in a more serious game, if you haven t kicked a ball since you were seven, or even if you ve never played football at all. Good players are very welcome too, as long as they re willing to join in the friendly team spirit and pass the ball to the rest of us :)
Gear: you do not need cleats, but they will certainly help if you already have them. Obviously, bring some sportsy clothes, and 1L of water or so.
Let s meet at:
Theatron im Ostpark, Friday 24 September, 17:00*.
We ll then go and find a field nearby, probably just south of there.
*Feel free to show up late; we ll probably be there until sundown.
COVID-19 policy: Please come only if you re vaccinated, immunised through previous infection with SARS-CoV-2, or, failing that, had a negative PCR test within the 48 hours prior to the meeting. Please be prepared to show evidence. Also, please do not come if you re recently showing any symptoms of COVID.
DISCLAIMER: Please note that, while the spirit of this meeting is to limit physical contact (and therefore injury) to a minimum, football (soccer) is a physical sport and contact will inevitably happen, so everyone assumes their own risk.
