Slippery courts

It's hard to call off games due to weather. Most of us love to play so much that we'll endure rain, cold, snow or extreme heat in order to play the game we love.

Futsal outdoors poses special challenges because moisture can linger on surfaces even when the sun is shining and temperatures are mild. The plastic tiles that we play on at The Cage provide a good surface when they are dry, but they are nasty and treacherous when wet. A situation that is particularly hard to judge is when the court appears to be dry, but there is also a significant amount of moisture in the air.

Hi everyone,

Almost two years ago, we introduced adult futsal to Durham, beginning with six teams and about 50 players in a tiny gym in south Durham. Since then, the growth in numbers, and the increase in quality, has been staggering.

We're happy to announce that the Durham Summer Cup of Futsal kicks off today with matches at The Cage between Greece and Wales, Chile and Ecuador, and Brazil and New Zealand.

Announcing the Durham Summer Cup of Futsal

We’re doing something different this summer: We’re having a futsal competition on the World Cup-Copa America-Euros model. Group play begins the week of July 11, and a knockout tournament follows.

We are going to use this tournament to raise money for players who sustained costly injuries this spring. Proceeds from the group stage, after expenses, will go to help these players with their bills.
