OHAFC weekly training returns!

13 Sep 2018

After an absence of several seasons, OHAFC weekly training sessions will once more resume for the 2018/19 season at a spectacular new rooftop venue situated between South Kensington & Sloane Square tube stations.

The new sessions will revert to the familiar format of five/six a side games with a few drills thrown in for good measure and will, once more, be for the exclusive benefit of club members only.

The pitch is surrounded on all sides and a net stretches above so the ball will always be in play - ensuring a more intense session than at previous venues. There are also changing facilities for those coming straight from work. The pitch itself is a modern 3G surface so astro trainers (no studs) are the only footwear allowed.

The new sessions will run on TUESDAY evenings from 7-8pm and will begin immediately, with the opening night slated for September 18th. The pitch has been booked right through until mid-December and members from all teams are encouraged to attend and ensure that once more regular training is a fixture in the OHAFC calendar.

The venue details are as follows:

Sloane Square Sports Pitch, Marlborough Primary School, Draycott Avenue, SW3 3AP

Sloane Square tube is a 10min walk

South Kensington tube is a 7min walk
