Hackney Laces was set up in 2011 as a place for girls and women to come and play football because there just weren’t enough opportunities for females to play. After running a pilot project we realised that football can be an incredibly powerful tool for empowering and raising the aspirations of our players. In addition to football training, we also run an ‘off the pitch’ programme, designed to inspire and support our girls beyond football. From job applications and training opportunities to work experience placements and mentoring, the Laces community supports over 200 girls in East London.
All ages and abilities are welcome. Have a read of our manifesto which explains the ethos of the club. If Hackney Laces isn’t the right fit for you, we’ll do our best to find you somewhere to play.
