Bishops and Ledley King at the Opening of the Lea Valley Footgolf Course

IMG_122716 Year 7 students were amongst the first in the borough to try their luck at the new Footgolf Course that has recently opened at the Lea Valley Golf Course on Mollison Avenue. The school was invited along to the open day to test out the facilities and try a brand new sport. To help promote the day and the sport, Ex Tottenham Hotspur captain and current club Ambassador Ledley King attended the event and was available on course to sign autographs and have photos taken with the students. Ledley, who played 321 times for Spurs and 21 times for England was asking the students what they thought of the sport and the facilities and the response from the students was very positive.

What is Footgolf?

Footgolf is played on a golf course using a football. The object of the game is to get the ball into the hole using only your feet in the fewest number of shots possible.
