Street ball is taking traditional ball games to places more accessible to residents, and utilising spaces in creative ways.

Whatever your fitness level, everyone can get involved in a kickabout. Inspired by South American street football and futsal, Street Ball is a project which brings ball games to unusual places and adds music.

Come for as little or as long as you want and get moving.


Street Ball - Ripple Road

An open session for all! Take part in fun football games, whatever your fitness level, in unusual urban spaces. Football has always been a community sport, where people use the parks and streets where they live to enjoy the beautiful game, with their friends and neighbours. This is a chance to play in the enclosed pitch on the Gascoigne Primary School roof.

Gascoigne Primary School, The Shaftesburys, IG11 7DR

Street ping pong - Church Elm

Everyone has turned their hand to table tennis at some point. As table tennis tables start turning up in unexpected places, these regular sessions will give you a chance to pick up a bat and ball and have a game. Try out your ping pong skills and meet your neighbours.
