The club has at least two training sessions and one competitive tournament per month. Training is held between 10am-1pm at the SCORE Centre on Oliver Road, Leyton, E10 5JY.

Metro Member Everton Amos talks about playing partially sighted futsal with Charlie Raven our sports development officer in the audio podcast below.
