The 7-a-side football league with a difference is only for men who want to lose weight.

Kick the Fat kicks off with a registration session on Thursday July 11 at 6pm. The course runs for ten weeks starting Wednesday July 17 and Thursday July 18 from 6pm at Furzedown Recreation Centre, SW17 9BP.

Subsidised by Wandsworth Council, the cost is just £20 for the entire ten-week course.

Each week you will be weighed before the game and your weight loss converted into goals on the pitch. The league is only for people with a BMI of 30+, so everybody will be in the same boat. To help with your weight loss, each week you’ll get a chance to meet with a qualified nutritionist to get tips and advice on your diet.

Kick the Fat is perfect for all abilities and fitness even if you haven't played football for a while. You don't have to play every week as even non-playing teammates can still lose weight and contribute to the score.

Set yourself a goal, sign up as an individual or as a team and see if you can kick the fat.

To register call the Kick the fat team on 020 3959 0035, email or complete the registration form on our site
