Royal Docks Summer Programme

Queens’ Roar! - fun, friendly football tournament and family day!

The Royal Docks Team are hosting a free, fun one-day football tournament (five-a-side) for Newham-based women and girls football teams this Summer! As the Women’s Euros roll into town this summer, Green Street, with its vibrant culture and rich footballing heritage, is the inspiration for Queens’ Roar, a series of cultural moments celebrating women, football and culture.

If you’re a Newham-based team – get in touch as we’d love you to come and play. This is a fun, friendly tournament for local teams!

If you’re a football fan or just fancy a day out in the park - all are welcome to come and watch and cheer on the teams. Bring the family too as there are free activities to get involved with on the side lines:

  • Fun football coaching sessions for younger children
  • Badge making workshops to design your own football emblem or badge
  • Photography ‘booth’ with brilliant local photographer Sylvie Belbouab, who will also be taking portraits of the teams on the day

Come and join us for a fun day in the park and let’s celebrate all the brilliant talent from local women and girls’ teams and get excited ahead of the Women’s EUROS finals later in July!
