FirmBalls is the first five-a-side league designed specifically for businesses and professionals it is based on the premise of ‘networking through football’ and the central idea is in providing a relaxed and competitive environment for professionals of all types to play football which has been great success in the other area they have been set up in.
FirmBalls allows businesses to provide a team building environment and regular exercise for their staff as well as allowing those professionals to directly network and market the business. As well as the leagues they also host regular networking events that include, drinks nights, quiz nights and golf days. Since launching in 2011, Firmballs have been running 10 successful leagues across Sussex continually providing the core elements of the business:
Currently Firmballs are looking for teams and individual players to join their new and exciting Hastings & Bexhill league which starts on Tuesday 17th September 2013, from 6:30pm-8pm at Bexhill college.
Firmballs state that it does not matter if you have seen better footballing days, or still play competitively, you can play against other business people in your local area and build relationships which could help your company to prosper.
Solicitors, accountants, bank managers, estate agents, surveyors and many other professional service providers are welcome and for smaller firms. If your business is small and doesn’t have enough players then you could join together with other businesses to create a team. It only costs £30 per team per week, for a 42 minute game as well so is worth considering if you are looking to network and get some exercise.
