A new and exciting activity aimed at giving young people aged 10-19 years something to do on Friday nights is coming to Hamble.
Friday Night Football will be taking place on the artificial pitch at Hamble Sports Complex, starting Friday 7 June from 7pm-9pm and will cost just £1 per person. The activity will be run by local sports coaching company Active Me 360.
Co-ordinated by Eastleigh Borough Council, Friday Night Football offers informal football sessions for boys and girls, supported by qualified FA coaches.
The project has been running for 15 years, offering weekly sessions in Botley and Eastleigh. And now, thanks to funding from the Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner and Bursledon, Hamble-le-Rice & Hound Local Area Committee (BHH LAC), the project is now introducing a weekly session in Hamble.
Chair of BHH LAC, Cllr Tonia Craig, said: “Young people are telling us that they would like more to do in Hamble. Friday Night Football is a great initiative to help address this, providing a fun, social and healthy activity in a safe environment. The existing sessions in Botley and Eastleigh offer clear benefits for both young people and the wider community and we hope to do the same in Hamble.”
