Each session costs just £1 and young people are free to come and go as they please and choose the sports they want to take part in, whether it be football, dodgeball or cricket.

Two new sessions start in 2015 during term time every Wednesday from 14 January 6-7pm at the District Council's Wirksworth Leisure Centre new astro turf pitch and at Matlock's Cavendish Fields astro turf pitch every Friday from 16 January 7-8pm.
