New venue for programmes up and running!

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has delivered sporting activities for over 500 young people in recent weeks at the newly refurbished Wadham Lodge Sports Ground, Waltham Forest, in partnership with Match Day Centres.

The new purpose-built sports centre caters to both grassroots and professional users and has FIFA approved floodlights, all-weather and grass pitches.

Alongside these fantastic football facilities, the Foundation also has use of the changing rooms, a physiotherapist treatment room and facilities for the delivery of education programmes, training courses and also an office for Foundation staff.

The partnership has enabled the Foundation to create a fully inclusive community focused sports, health and education ‘Hub Site’ in the heart of the Borough.

Gary Broadhurst, Community Development Manager at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, said: “The Borough of Waltham Forest is one of the Foundation’s key areas of operation, and the creation of a new Sports, Health and Education ‘Hub Site’ in the heart of the borough will positively enhance opportunities for the local community.”

Tottenham Hotspur Foundation will be running a week-long programme at the venue during the May Half Term, focusing on football techniques and skill development. Young people aged 6-14 years from the local community can learn a wide range of exciting skills on the course, such as individual ball mastery techniques, advanced core skill techniques, 1v1 domination practices, goalscoring and freestyling.

The course runs from Tuesday 31 May to Friday 3 June and is £50 for the week or £20 each day. On completion of the course all participants will be awarded a medal and certificate signed by Harry Redknapp, which will be presented by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s Football Freestyler, Billy Wingrove.
