Walking Football

Our Walking Football Programme offers men & women a chance to continue playing the game they love as well as encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle. The game is small sided, with no running on or off the ball, very little contact and kick-ins instead of throw-ins. With less stress on the body and no real sudden change of direction or cutting movements the game allows participants to play without apprehension.

Walking Football has become increasingly popular and is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle, as well as to support getting people back into football who have stopped due to age or injury.
