We're still collecting donations

On the 11th July 2020 we'd raised £20 with 2 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.


With top class English football returning to our screens, Stockport sport lovers will

be chomping at the bit to return to competitive action as soon as possible.

And while it may be some time before grass roots teams are allowed to return to the

cricket, football, baseball and other pitches – there is a way for people to get their fix.

The Players’ Entrance, based in the Merseyway Shopping Centre, is an indoor

sports theme park arena with state-of-the-art simulators, replicating football shootout

outs, cricket bowling, golf, F1 racing, darts and much more.

When it first opened the venue was a smash hit with top class sportsmen

themselves, including cricket legend Darren Gough, several of the Stockport County

team and Premier League Darts sensation Nathan Aspinall who all visited after

hearing about the concept.

Now The Players’ Entrance is set to re-open for exclusive hire after the team carried

out a full risk assessment and ordered social distancing signage and sanitisation


Groups will be allowed to book the facility for up to 15 people for 90 minutes

exclusive play for just £250, and the venue has a partnership deal with McDonalds

meaning that a food and drink package can also be supplied.

Along with the entertainment, bookings will also have a social benefit with the

Players’ Entrance matching every booking with a free slot being donated to the

friends and family of Frontline Key Workers.

Founder Steve Mottershead said: “People have been in daily contact asking when

we can re-open because they are desperate to play some sport – especially with the

return of football and cricket in the UK whetting their appetite.

“We created the exclusive hire package to keep safe whilst giving them the chance

to enjoy the full run of the place and we have already taken several bookings.

“Everyone that books a slot will also trigger a ‘matching’ pledge from us which will

see a slot given free of charge to key workers to thank them for their efforts and

reward their friends and family for the sacrifices that have been made.”

Darren Gough said: “I loved the concept when I visited and it is great to see them

supporting the key workers with this re-opening – if I get the chance I will book a slot


Anyone interested in booking a slot, and supporting key workers in Stockport, should contact the venue on 0161 501 1775 or email your enquiry [email protected]

If you are unable to visit The Players Entrance yourself , click the link here on our crowd funding page and donate as little or as much as you can, so we can offer free use of the facilities to as many Key Workers as possible. 

Thank you.
