Whether you’re looking to train, to hire a pitch or you want to hone your skills the Netherton Activity Centre Football Academy is top of the league when it comes to football. With your choice of two 7-a-side and four 5-a-side pitches your team can play on a casual basis or join a league. As all pitches are floodlit you can play into the night year round so when the light fades your game doesn’t have to and with the latest 3G pitches we don’t compromise on quality, just like the Premier League. Booking A Pitch All our pitches are available to hire on a casual pay and play basis and can be booked up to seven days in advance. Alternatively, group bookings are available so that you can book your pitch hire for a season should you so wish. In addition, discounts are available to everyone who chooses to book pitch hire with an Active Choices card. Football Parties (8-13 years) For a party to remember, football parties are a great way to spend the day with friends. With a full hour pitchside followed by an hour partying in the activity studio there’s plenty of chances to score a golden goal. Our parties are well known for their fun atmosphere created by our enthusiastic staff as it is our mission to ensure all children and their guests enjoy their special day so why not pick up a brochure to find out more.
