THE FOOTBALL GROUNDS
To our valued and loyal customers.
It is with great sadness that we inform you that TFG has not survived its second closure due to Covid, and our doors will not reopen. As you are a valued part of our TFG family, we wanted to fully explain what has happened.
We opened in 2017 with a dream of providing excellent soccer training to the Coast, fun comps and a venue for the community to use for many sporting activities.
As our desire was to make our training accessible to as wide a group as possible, we have always kept fees as low as possible by simply covering our costs. Our business was built out of a passion for the sport and recognition of the enjoyment it gave to those who participated, rather than a profit-making venture. We also wanted to provide work to enthusiastic local football coaches who needed flexibility around their football commitments, allowing them to give back to the community by teaching what they love.
Unfortunately, last year's lockdown hit us hard. With our fixed costs unchanged in this current lockdown we now find ourselves in an impossible position. The decision has been an incredibly hard one for us, and we recognise the impact on both our community as well as on our wonderful team of staff.
We want to take this opportunity to thank all of you, as without your support and encouragement, we would not have been able to stay open for this long. We have loved getting to know you, and the children that have participated in our skills sessions and comps. Our greatest joy was seeing the children come off the pitch with huge grins and sweaty faces! We will miss this so much………
We are deeply grateful for the numerous businesses that have been supporting us by hiring our space for the last few years. We are incredibly thankful for your support and so sorry to have to close our doors. We wish you and your business all the best through this challenging time.
A great local business will be taking over our building. I think the kids will love this business, so please help support them in the coming weeks. For now, TFG family please stay safe and look after yourselves and each other.
With gratitude and tears…..
The TFG family.
