Ravenscourt Park Junior League
Following exceptional demand for additional Friday Night 5s team spaces in nearby Chiswick and Barnes, we’re delighted to bring the Friday Night 5s youth football league to Hammersmith!
Built on Friendship, Fair Play and Fun – our Friday evening junior 5-a-side leagues will take place in Ravenscourt Park, which also features a nearby Café and Playground.
Friday Night 5s Hammersmith are all set to quickly reach the sell-out success of the Chiswick and Barnes venues and become a popular fixture within Hammersmith community life for children and their parents alike – featuring junior teams playing over 3 hours across 3 pitches. From the moment the whistle blows for kick off from 4pm, the atmosphere of fun and camaraderie will be palpable amongst the junior teams, and a real social occasion for many parents too!
Autumn season runs from 6th September for 15 weeks with the last match on 20th December. There is no match Friday 1st November due to half term.
We are hosting a mini Friday Night 5s Festival on the 5th July between 4:30pm-6:00pm at Kings House Sports Ground, W4 2SP. This is open to new junior players in school years 2-6. Come down and enjoy mini matches to experience Friday Night 5s. Join in as an individual or as a team.
Places are limited, so secure your team’s place today by emailing Barry at: Barry@rockslane.com
We often hear from parents and children that Friday Night 5s is a very different experience to what they might encounter in a weekend league. Friendship, Fair Play and Fun are the values of Friday Night 5s because they are so important to those who takes part.
The five-a-side format, based around Friendship of boys and girls of a similar age, helps create this atmosphere. Friends come together to design, manage and play in a team that is truly theirs: choosing their own team name, designing their team badge and, if they wish, having their own team strip too.
Our Match Rules and Code of Conduct for Players, Parents and Coaches are there to champion Fair Play in the spirit of the game and ensure Fun for all – win, lose or draw. Referees assess all matches for Fair Play and a Fair Play Award is given at the end of every week.
Hammersmith is the fourth Friday Night 5s location. We kicked off Friday Night Fives in Barnes in 1995 with just 4 teams. Today we regularly attract almost 2,500 junior footballers every Friday evening across our three other West London venues playing on 26 pitches. It’s an incredible buzz!
The whistle will blow for our youngest age group Friday Night 5s matches at Hammersmith from 4pm. Matches last roughly 40 minutes.. Our experienced team of referees and coaches ensure everything runs smoothly, rain or shine!
Friday Night 5s teams of all ages that are keen to progress their abilities can work with one of the coaches we have available at Friday Night 5s Hammersmith.
We run private and open football coaching classes throughout the week at our Rocks Lane Chiswick and Barnes venues for ages 3 upwards. A team looking to improve their skills and tactics can have a private coaching class during the week and put the new skills they have learned into action during their Friday Night 5s match at Hammersmith, with the same coach provide in-game guidance and advice from the side of the pitch, as part of our Match Day Manager service. It’s a fantastic way to learn and try out new skills! To find out more about coaching please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
