Football Pitch in Pedi

Postby skeetes » 15 Mar 2012, 13:41

Hi. My partner, me, and our two footballing mad sons are coming to Symi in August and I've seen some mentions about a football pitch in Pedi in this forum. Does anyone know anything about this facility? Can anyone use it?

Our boys are aged 7 and 9 and we've been to Symi a few times now and are really looking forward to our return!

There certainly is a football pitch in Pedi and rather grand it is too!

I don't now about access but I have seen kids having a kick around when I've passed so I don't expect there will be a problem.

Thanks Allen. Not sure how much running around I'll be doing in August! But I'm sure I wont be able to stop the young-uns!

I certainly wouldn't be running around in August. In fact I don't really do running around at all. But should you feel the urge and work up a bit of a sweat you can no doubt tell from the picture that you're not much more than five minutes stagger from the nearest Mythos. ;)

Wow look at that pitch, that looks like an excellent pitch. Thanks so much for uploading the photo. I wonder if all the water from the desalanation plant goes onto keeping the pitch green :D or maybe its astroturf.

Thanks Allan

It's astroturf alright but impressive non the less.

I have been there and seen a match on it last November. It's not just an astro pitch it's a 3G astro.

Great. 3G!
Like Neil Gosling's site and photo's too.
Thanks.

Well if anyone picks up this thread and is up for a kick about, subject to getting access to the pitch, in August (9th - 17th) then please reply.

Also, if anyone knows who I should contact about use of the facility, please let me know.
