Mars Just Play

'Just Play' kickabouts are great for when you want to play without committing to a weekly game, a complicated league or fancy team strips. It’s all about loose, casual play.

  • Saturday 17:30-19:30 | 2 October until 18 December 2021

Venue: The games will take place at the Centre for Sport astro pitch

Book: If you have a MOVE or Active Card membership book your session via the app or online. Mars Just Play sessions are really popular, so please ensure you book on early to avoid disappointment. Please see the guidelines for acceptable footwear on the Centre for Sport Astro and Hillside Gardens 4G pitch. You will not be allowed to enter in unacceptable footwear.
