Girls and Women Football

  • Female football games are played on Sunday's.

  • Over the next year, the Australian football community will be very much focused on promoting the women's game, with Australia and New Zealand confirmed as joint hosts of the 2023 Women's World Cup. Everyone in Australia would be aware of our Matildas and their inspiring run to the Olympic semi-finals, while the more recent English FA Cup win by Sam Kerr’s Chelsea has cemented her place as a world class footballer and a source of inspiration for many younger girls. With that comes engagement with mums, aunties and sisters and a burgeoning female football competition.

  • For a long time, O35s men was the fastest growing segment of Australian sport, now it is women’s sport and, in particular, women and girls’ football. Penno FC would love to play its part in encouraging greater female participation, and with the success of our summer football competition and our O30W-3s Premiership still fresh, hopefully those of you already involved in playing with Penno teams can encourage your friends to come and join us in 2022.

  • We are contemplating a 2–3 week, free skills training programme for U5-U12 girls, to be led by our friends at KANO. Watch out for more information as we confirm some details.

  • Girls (from U6s) can play in either the mixed competition (Saturday) or the women’s competition (Sunday). Prospective female players who are not sure whether a female team will be formed in their age group should therefore contact Ian Martin on 0438 963 047 or pennofcfemalefootball@gmail.com

When registering, please select the applicable age group mixed option. In the registration form, there is a question which asks 'Will you/your child be participating in a female only team at Penno in 2022?' Please select 'yes' from the drop down menu.
