In amongst a crazy week of children's birthday parties... Last week we had the honour of welcoming former Leicester Tigers, Lions and England Rugby Union captain Neil Back MBE to SportsPad! Neil is a keen all round sportsman and he loved the selection of games available on our Multi Sport Simulator.

During his visit he tried his hand at some Golf, Football, Footgolf and of course Rugby Union! Not known for his kicking ability he certainly impressed on our 'Penalty Conversions' and 'Drop Goal' game modes. Neil was extremely complimentary of our setup, it was a pleasure to meet such an iconic local and national sporting hero... We are assured Neil will return in the near future for another visit.



We are already taking lots of bookings for both youth and adult football teams Christmas Parties! It's a perfect opportunity for teams to come together and have a fun day/evening and really get in the festive spirit!

August saw us run our first ever SportsPad competetition. This was done through our popular Facebook page.

The response was fantastic and as a result we gave away 3 prizes. The 1st prize was won by Hayley Townsend. She won a 2 hour visit to use during the school holidays for up to 10 children inclusive of Pizza and drinks for the kids. The visit went down great with the kids, a fun filled 2 hours for all!

Our 2 runners up each winning an hours visit were:

Emma Jarram

Laua Natzel

We will be running more competitions in the near future so please keep checking our Facebook page 'Walshy's SportsPad' for these.

Trying to help support youth football within the local community we have teamed up AFC Andrews to sponsor their Under 6s football teams.

The lads made a visit to SportsPad recently, all of the players were proudly wearing their new Walshy’s SportsPad branded tracksuits!

The lads loved their time playing on the simulator, the enthusiasm of the lads, coaches and parents was plain to see. There was some extremely impressive footballing talent on display as they tried many of our football game modes with parents and coaches joining in too.

We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the club and wish them every success in their upcoming summer tournaments and fixtures for the 2017/18 season.
