DLP Dads’ 5-a-side Football Tournament


Dear Sir/Madam


On Saturday 17th September we are holding a 5-a-side football tournament held at Dawlish Astro Turf for dads from schools in the Dawlish Learning Partnership. The event is being funded by Active Devon and is free to enter. We are hoping to kick things off at 11am with matches spread throughout the early afternoon. There will also be free refreshments available afterwards for participants. Obviously families and supporters are welcome to come along and cheer on the teams! Torquay United Football in the Community will be coordinating the tournament and also providing football taster sessions for children on the day.


We are happy to accommodate as many teams as are interested, but ask that squads are no larger than 8 where possible. The aim of the day is to have fun and to enjoy yourselves playing football, there is no requirement for any footballing ability or skill. If you are interested please get in contact with other dads from your child’s school and once you have organised a squad of at least five please contact Lewis Harben at:


I recognise that this is short notice and apologise, but the funding was only granted during the summer holidays and the event has to take place on this date. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at the email address above.


Get practising in the back garden,



Lewis Harben
