We allow open access to the ground for Linden Bridge School and will allow any local group reasonable access. Contact has been made with sports development officers at Epsom & Ewell and we will foster our relationship with the local authority.
We have community football for 5 and 6 year olds every Saturday morning. The planned 3G surface will provide vital access to training facilities in periods of bad weather.
Several Special Education Needs (SEN) schools already have an association with Wandgas through our annual 5-a-side tournament and we are well aware of the significance of the students being able to participate in a football tournament for the first time ever and this is expected to increase with the development of the 3G surface.
Wandgas have already helped these students move from no football to competing against other schools and has achieved the main objective of giving those who don’t normally get the chance, an opportunity to play football in an organised manner.
The Wandgas disability teams are made up of children with a variety of special education needs, such as Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, Epilepsy, Dyspraxia, Cerebral Palsy, and Downs Syndrome – some with associated hearing problems.
