Women's Over 35

Football for Women Aged 35+

Turn up and Play event on Sunday 5 March 2023 in Carlisle

To kickstart the women’s Over 35 opportunities for women across the county, Cumberland FA will be hosting a ‘Turn up and Play’ event on Sunday 5 March 2023 in Carlisle.

Date: Sunday 5 March 2023

Venue: Harraby 3G (pens), Edgehill Road, Carlisle CA1 3SL

Time: 2:30pm – 4:00pm

Hosted alongside the women’s festival, the over 35 turn up and play session will be an opportunity for women (whether experienced or new to the game) to come along and have a kick about.

Whether you come along on your own, with a friend or a few of you – join us and we will put teams together on the day to have some match time in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

More than 30 women have completed the Over 35 provision survey and will be invited to attend the event.

Cumberland FA Football Development Officer, Helen Aitchison ,said: “We’re aware the first Turn up and Play event in Carlisle will not be convenient for everyone but we thought it would be a great opportunity to invite women down alongside the women’s festival to kickstart the Over 35 provision in the county. The plan is to run a number of these through the summer months across Cumberland.”

We recommend participants wear shinpads and appropriate footwear. There will be no cost to attend the event in Carlisle.

Pre-register for the event by completing the short online registration form. (Registrations on the day will also be available)


Cumberland FA are working with local teams across the county to develop regular sessions for women to turn up and play. More information will be available as details are confirmed.
