Walking football is a slower version of the beautiful game
For all ages, abilities and fitness levels
If you’ve got the game in you, Walking Football sets you free. Walking Football is the perfect fit for everyone who wants to play football for longer, make new friends, get out of the house and stay active.
With no running, jogging or heading – and tackling with reduced physical contact – Walking Football is a fun and safe way for players to enjoy football and socialise together.
It is designed to give players who may not be able to play regular football the opportunity to continue playing it is proving to be particularly popular with players in the ‘twilight’ of their footballing careers.
Other than walking as opposed to running, the rules are the same as the regular version of the game, so individuals who may not have played for years or perhaps suffer from a mobility injury can play again in confidence.
The sessions are recreational, light-hearted and most importantly – fun!
The demand for walking football has significantly increased in recent years, with players ranging from their 50’s right up to their 80’s, showing the variation of those wanting to get involved in the game.
