More than 70 players gathered for Kent’s first Women’s Futsal Festival on Saturday.
Supported by the Kent FA and run by the Kent Women’s Futsal League, it brought together league teams for an afternoon of competitive games at Canterbury Christ Church’s Sports Centre.
Sides from Faversham, Ramsgate, Canterbury, Hawkinge and Tankerton played 30 games, with Ramsgate being crowned the overall winners.
An awards ceremony was hosted by Old Gate Inn, Canterbury, with Faversham winning the league overall and sharing the fair play award with Canterbury Old Bags.
Lisa Hallweger, Lauren Baker, Christina Swain, Lisa Sparkes and Kim Boswell were among those to win player-of-the-year awards.
Futsal is a fast-paced indoor version of five-a-side football which originated in South America and it is now played by more than 10 million people in more than 100 countries.
The Kent Women’s Futsal League is played weekly and currently has six teams with room for more sides next season. For more information, visit the Kent Women’s Futsal League Facebook page.
There will be another countywide Futsal Festival on Saturday, July 30.
The Kent FA’s Natalie Curtis supports the league and she was delighted with the festival’s success.
She said: “It’s absolutely fantastic how much the Women’s Futsal League has grown in Kent and we are keen to see even more teams join."
