Are your feet itching to play football, but is your job keeping you away from it all? the guide lists a few new and popular indoor AstroTurf surfaces in Mumbai

Kick-off, Oshiwara
Started by three young entrepreneurs, and self-professed die-hard fans of football — Yogesh Advani, Vicky Hinduja and Satish Ganni, Kick-off recently opened its doors and fields to football players at the Om Heera Panna Mall in Oshiwara, Andheri (W). The facility can be hired on a pay-and-play basis as well as prior registration. It is a perfect spot to try your skills in a five-a-side football game, which can be booked on an hourly basis. It has FIFA-approved synthetic grass surface, is flood-lit, and offers a decent view of the city’s skyscrapers. And, if you wish to learn or improve your game, you can also enroll for one of their training programmes.
