WHY IS 5-A-SIDE FOOTBALL IS AS EXCITING AS 11-A-SIDE?
5-a-side football
5-a-side football is a smaller version of “the beautiful game” we are all so passionate about. It started in the UK in the 1950s when it was played by professional teams.
For the past two decades, it has been growing fast with an estimated 5 million people playing the sport regularly across the world.
MORE TOUCHES, MORE SKILLS, MORE PLAY!
 Since the length of the pitch is smaller with fewer players being part of the game, you’re never far from the action. A study found that players have over 4 times the touches in 60 minutes of game time of 5-a-side than a full 90 minutes game of 11-a-side football. Due to the format, every player is more involved in the game and the focus is on the core principles of football; passing, dribbling, possession and shooting.
BETTER FOR FITNESS
5-a-side football is an incredible game for developing fitness as well as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. It’s not just about physical fitness, it also serves to be a great mental release. The dynamic nature of the game, unique puzzles - like breaking the formation, anticipating the ball and the inherent challenges associated with the game, makes it as much a mental workout as it is a physical one.
LESS DEPENDENT ON WEATHER
5-a-side is an all-season sport. It is almost immune to light spells of shower or sun. In fact, it is a game that can be enjoyed in the rain. Worried about the sun in your eyes? The option of playing evening football gives you the luxury of playing when the sun isn't there. High-quality Astro grass turf ensures there is no issue of sogging pitch because no weather affects it.
MORE CONVENIENT AND EASIER TO GET A TEAM TOGETHER
In terms of getting a team and participating in the numerous leagues and tournaments that are
present, you only need 4 more friends to get started. It might still feel like hard work rounding up a squad of 5 players at times, but be thankful that you’re not trying to find a team of 11.
FUN & FITNESS
 Playing 5-a-side football is a lot of fun and, if you love football, 5-a-side gives you the most intense
experience, with more involvement in the game, at an amateur level and more value for money. No wonder it proves to be popular with millions of people all over the world.
FOOTBALL TENNIS
Football Tennis is a sport played with a football. It is a ball game that can be played indoors or outdoors in a court divided by a low net with two opposing teams (one, two or three players) who try to score a point hitting the ball with any part of their body except for the hands and making it bounce in the opponent's area in a way that makes it difficult or impossible for the other team to return it over the net.
