Soccer enthusiasts both young and old will be interested to find out what Active Trowbridge have on offer this October . . .

For three days during half-term week, Active’s Soccer Schools are returning to John of Gaunt School. Aimed at ages 5-14, these sessions are intended to develop youngsters’ soccer skills. The schedule is:

Monday 26th – Take Ball/Pass Ball
Tuesday 27th – Attack v. Defence
Wednesday 28th – Premier League Day

The sessions run between 9am and 3.15pm each day, and the cost for the three days is £45.00 per child. Each child must bring their own football kit, shinpads and trainers, and also a packed lunch and snacks to last the day, along with a water bottle. To book, please visit uk.

For footballers of, shall we say, less tender years, Walking Football has now returned to the games area in Trowbridge Park. Walking football is a slower version of the traditional game and is designed to appeal to anyone looking to exercise in a relaxed, supportive and friendly environment, and is suitable for adults of any ability. Sessions are held between 1.30 and 2.30pm every Wednesday, and cost £1 per session per player – with the first session free!
