You can start playing right now!

If you’ve missed playing 5-a-side football at Willows Sports Centre during the pandemic, then we have the fantastic news that we are back! 

Many of you will have played football with us via playsportnow.co.uk at partner outdoor venues since August 2020, and we hope that you’ve loved every minute of it!  But now we’re back indoors at Derby’s much loved indoor venue. 

We have been looking to accommodate all teams who were playing with us when we closed our doors on March 16th, 2020, and wherever possible, in the leagues that they finished in. Covid-19 restrictions will mean that some characteristics of our leagues will have to change, some short-term and some for the foreseeable future. However, we will guarantee you the same league service that you have come to love over the years.

Our leagues now feature our new online payment system which you can find out more about here. We will also be following strict Covid-19 safety protocols, which you should be aware of and can read here
