"“Thank you to all the staff at the Forest Sports Zone, for firstly being there and working during these uncertain times. During this coronavirus pandemic, they reopened in July with a COVID secure set up where there was a 15-minute window between teams playing. This helped keep teams apart and keep people safe. We have had a number of questions during this period and they have all been dealt with in a professional manner, always looking to find a way to help.”"


"“We have played at The Forest Sports Zone for ten years now; always friendly faces, great value, and brilliant on the 3G and Astro! Keep up the good work!”"

"“The Forest Sports Zone staff are extremely supportive and helpful with our weekly sessions and suggestions of tournaments and charity events. They also help out with volunteers on charity events with refs, general helpers and balls etc which is invaluable to us. The staff at the Forest Sports Zone are also very involved with promoting and progressing with women’s football which is so refreshing after years of trying to get recognised within the game. Thank you for all your help over the last few years and as a local football community it’s very much appreciated.”"
