You can't beat 5-a-side, with it's double figure scorelines, questionable head-height decisions and next-goal-winner rule. You can't beat goals from the halfway line, silky stepovers and cheeky nutmegs, or the great workout this indoor game provides. If 11-a-side is the beautiful game, 5-a-side is for the love of the game.

Our 5-a-side pitch features standard goals and regulation markings.
