I thought I would post a message here first before phoning round the local community centres - does anyone know of any weekday after-school sports activities for a 5-year-old? We have martial arts sorted and weekends are covered but would love to find other sporting activities during the week - particularly football.

Thanks in advance.

Try the sports centre at London South Bank University: they have activities for 5-8 yr olds.
