Teenagers have been taking on their peers in a number of cage football tournaments across Nailsea.
Youth for Christ set the equipment up at Nailsea School, the town’s skatepark, the Methodist church and the Baptist church’s youth club.
The charity is hosting the Nomad Football Cage Project, which has been funded by the Nailsea Connect group.
Nailsea School’s connect worker Neil Wylie said: “This was an exciting way to start the new term and an opportunity for all students across the year groups to engage in something different as part of their regular timetable.”
The game is played in a circular cage with a goal on one side.

Teams consist of two-a-side and the score is decided on goals – unless one player performs a nutmeg which leads to an outright victory.
A nutmeg is where a player dribbles a ball through their opponent’s legs and collects it on the other side.
