Get fit with new year footy

Men over the age of 35 are being encouraged to kick-start their New Year’s resolutions with the return of weekly football sessions in Eastwood.

Broxtowe Borough Council is running weekly sessions every Tuesday between 7pm and 8pm at the Eastwood Community Sports Centre in Mansfield Road.

Each session is a casual kick-about and there is no coaching involved. Sessions take place on an astroturf surface and players are asked to wear either trainers or astroturf trainers, rather than football boots.

People can turn up on the evening or book a place in advance. Admission costs £2 per week.
