The BIGKID Girl’s Football Festival is our round-robin style tournament for girls aged 12-15 and 16+ held in partnership with This Girl Can in Lambeth, which aims to encourage young women to become more active.

Football Festival for Girls

The festival is an extension of the BIGKID Female Sports Engagement Program, which teaches leadership and personal development via after school football clubs and fitness sessions to girl’s aged 11-‐25.

Held at Larkhall Park 3G pitches in Stockwell, we ran three tournaments in 2016, with over 65 girls per tournament in attendance, and we’re expecting an  increase in numbers as we do the same again this year; places are already filling up as teams register their interest.

The next festival is on 10 April, followed by two further tournaments on 15 August and 23 October.

If you’re aged 12-15, or 16+ and would like to get involved, you can either enter as part of a team, or come down to Larkhall Park as an individual to be assigned one. Entry is open to girls living in the borough of Lambeth.
