One thing that you are never short of in Derby is sporting activities. There seems to be a zumba class or pilates on every street corner and the council run Springwood and Queens Sports Centres will always have something going. However, if you've got little'uns tearing your hair out, especially during the holiday periods (which seem to get longer each year) then there really is nothing better than SoccerStars. Set up by ex-pros Darren Wassall and Pat Lyons, SoccerStars is the number 1 football school in Derby. They focus on the fun and enjoyment but do also have close links to Derby FC Academy if they spot potential. It is a great way to get out the house and expend some of that never ending energy they seem to have!
