Hearing-impaired Futsal

Cambridge United Community Trust have launched a hearing-impaired futsal session as part of our growing Disability Sport programme. Futsal is FIFA's recognised version of five-a-side football and is played indoors with a ball that is slightly heavier than usual, encouraging players to put a greater emphasis on creativity, improvisation and technique. Our sessions are open to anyone with a hearing impairment; we encourage women, men, girls and boys of all abilities and experience to give it a go. Sessions are delivered by our Disability Officer, Phil Mullen, who is experienced in working with people with disabilities and has completed a Coaching Deaf Footballers workshop delivered by the FA, and all equipment is provided.

Community Trust Manager, Danny Kerrigan, said: "This is the first disability sport session to start since Phil's appointment as our Disability Officer, and we are delighted that we are already beginning to expand the opportunities we provide for those with disabilities, adding to the cerebral palsy and Down's syndrome sessions that we deliver on Saturday mornings. The challenge now is to advertise this opportunity as widely as possible to ensure that the session becomes sustainable, but also because sessions are much more enjoyable when they are well attended."

The hearing-impaired futsal session takes place on Tuesday evenings at Impington Village College from 7pm-8pm, running until 15th December and then restarting in the New Year on Tuesday 5th January. No registration is necessary but we do ask for £5 from each participant to contribute to our running costs.

Please feel free to download and distribute our flyer.
