Boot swap

Welcome to the Turks Boot Swap!

At Fordingbridge Turks, we believe that every player deserves the opportunity to perform their best on the pitch. That's why we're excited to introduce our Boot Swap, aimed at providing affordable and accessible footwear solutions for players of all ages and skill levels.

About the Program:

The Boot Swap is a grassroots initiative designed to promote inclusivity, affordability, and sustainability within our local football community. Through the exchange and redistribution of gently-used football boots, we aim to ensure that every player has access to quality footwear without financial barriers.

Key Features:

  1. Boot Exchange Events: We will organise regular boot exchange events where players can donate their gently-used boots and trade them for a pair in their size.

  2. Quality Assurance: All donated boots undergo a thorough inspection to ensure that they meet our quality standards. We only accept boots that are in good condition, with minimal wear and tear, to ensure the safety and comfort of our players.

  3. Affordability: Our Boot Swap offers an affordable alternative to purchasing new boots. By exchanging boots with fellow players, participants can save money while still accessing quality footwear that meets their needs.

  4. Sustainability: By recycling and redistributing gently-used boots, we contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing waste and extending the lifecycle of sporting equipment. It's a win-win situation for both players and the planet.

How It Works:

  1. Boot Donation: Players can donate their gently-used boots at our designated collection point at the 3G pitch in Burgate School or during boot exchange events such as our end of season celebration. Boots should be clean, in good condition, and suitable for use by other players.

  2. Boot Exchange: Players can attend our boot exchange events to browse the available selection of boots and find a pair in their size. Each pair of boots is labelled with relevant size information to facilitate easy selection.

  3. Community Engagement: Boot exchange events provide an opportunity for players, parents, coaches, and volunteers to come together and engage with the local football community. It's a chance to share stories, forge friendships, and celebrate our shared love of the game.

Get Involved:

Drop your unused boots or kits at our collection point on the 3G pitch on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evenings.

Join us in making football more accessible, affordable, and sustainable for everyone in our community through the Boot Swap at Fordingbridge Turks FC.
