Come and play at Arc

The new state-of-the-art Arc Leisure Matlock will get a kick-start in September with the launch of the Derbyshire Dales’ first FA-affiliated small-sided football league.

Men’s and women’s teams will compete in the new Arc Leisure Small-Sided Football League indoors at the district council’s new £12-million facility.

Open to teams with players aged 16 and over, the league starts in the autumn season and will end with a presentation event.

The men’s six-a-side league will take place on Mondays from 7pm-10pm and the women’s five-a-side league on Fridays from 7pm–10pm.

There is a one-off registration fee of £20 per team and a match fee of £20 per team – but places are limited, so apply as soon as possible.

Forms, to be returned by Sunday, July 24, are available from the council’s leisure centres and can also be downloaded online at
