App can help footballers in Hackney
Footballers in Hackney are being encouraged to kick off the New Year in style by booking pitches online for 2018.
The borough has a rich history in grassroots football, with the famous Hackney Marshes synonymous with this level of the beautiful game.
There are numerous places to enjoy a match around Hackney and booking service MyLocalPitch has created a useful map to highlight some of the options available, including indoor, outdoor, small-sided or 11-a-side venues.
Each venue can easily be booked online or through an iOS app, which offers a ‘Search by Time’ feature that allows Londoners to fit a match in around their lives.
Launched four years ago, MyLocalPitch has helped encourage players to be more active by making it easier to play their best-loved sports.
