dc.description.abstractPurpose: The purpose of this study was to identify challenges faced by women football players who participate in football leagues. Methodology: The study adopted a descriptive survey design. It was conducted in Gatundu North and Thika West. The target population for this study was the 8 and 6women football teams in Gatundu North and Thika West districts, respectively. Focus group discussion guide, Interview schedule and Questionnaire were the instruments of data collection. The study mainly yielded qualitative data. This was sorted out, analyzed quantitatively and presented in tables. Results: There were several challenges that faced women football players. Among them, funding was the main one. Others included; society‟s negative attitude towards women football which translates to poor participation of women in football activities in the area; biological factors such as menstruation and pregnancy; poor governance of the football organizations; limited access to facilities and equipment and women‟s gender roles and responsibilities. Contribution to Theory, Practice and Policy: The study recommended that the National government, county government as well as the Football Kenya Federation should be keen on women football and give it the attention that it deserves in order to improve their participation in football.en_US
