“If we get a really good take-up, I could see us putting out several teams, perhaps with different age groups, playing competitive matches, catering for players up to 70 or 75.

“Just because players get older doesn’t mean they want to stop playing, or stop being competitive. It's about seeing people carrying on playing, enjoying the game, enjoying being part of a team again and part of a club – and also about keeping people active."
