Enjoy a 360 virtual tour of Torquay Utd Football Club. As a local I like to support the local team and try to get to a game when I can.
I’ve come here many times over the years, more so as a kid. I was even lucky enough to play on the pitch on a couple of occasions. Once during a practice I attempted a volley that wildly flew way up and hit the top rim of the family stand, came back down to my feet and i put it in the back of the net. A trick shot I don’t think i could have done again even if I had tried a million times. I was promptly asked not to kick so hard or try any outlandish efforts any more so not to hit anyone watching from the stands 😂
I also enjoy a VIP day out for a friend’s 40th Birthday, getting our own room to watch the match and then drinking with the players and staff after the game before sitting down to enjoy a meal.
