Founded in 1990 ULWFC has gone from strength to strength, welcoming girls from all backgrounds and abilities. We aim to kick sporting stereotypes to the curb, increasing female participation in sport whilst smashing any targets we set ourselves year on year.
Some notable acheivements include Varsity wins against DMU from both teams and winning Team Leicester's Club of the Year in 2016/17 as well as intergrating our newly promoted Futsal team into our main programme.
Our club is focussed on creating a cohesive community within sport, as well as an environment where members can develop themselves as both people and players. So whether you were born in boots or would like to try something new, there's a place for everyone!
But we aren't just about playing football. The club's family dynamic means that you are never alone in your University journey and there's always girls to offer you advice and support. Our weekly Wednesday socials give the chance to wind down following BUCS fixtures, allowing girls to get to know eachother better as well as a chance to mix with other Team Leicester clubs. A range of sober socials are also planned throughout the month which everyone gets involved with whether it be mini golf or trampolining!
"Having been a part of the club for two years I've met people I never would've been able to meet through my course and made friends for life. I have a support system both on and off the pitch and have always felt so welcomed. The club truly has a space for everyone."
Rhianna Hutchinson - Club Captain
We have two teams that play in the BUCS League throughout the year and an oppurtunity for both to compete in the BUCS Cup. In addition the teams are involved in Varsity (March) against our rivals DMU.
If 11-a-side isn't for you, our two team 5-a-side Futsal programme could be! Combining a faster pace and more skills based style its become very popular, with most of our girl’s being involved in this as well as football. Both teams play in the BUCS League with the newly promoted 1st team playing in BUCS 1A and having a fixture in Varsity every year.
If you’re interested in playing or just want to give it a go, please come along to one of our training sessions or email us to find out more.
"Having the option to play two very different sports is so beneficial when it comes to skillset. I've developed hugely in the past year and made some amazing memories."
