Walking Football is an adapted version of the game which provides a great way for older independent adults (women and/or men), to keep playing a team sport. This session is played outdoors on the all-weather surface. We play rules similar to 5-a-side but without the running. Players are not permitted to run at any time, with or without the ball. We also play the game without any ‘intentional’ physical contact, so there is limited potential to tackle. Despite all of this, the games are certainly not slow! It provides a challenging and fun work out for most of us!

This session is targeted particularly at players who are 55 years and over and who would not be able (for whatever reason), to play regular small-sided football. The session consists of a group warm up, refereed game(s) and a stretch cool down. It is led by one of our experienced Activity Leaders.

Changing facilities are not currently available for use, so please come changed ready to play. Toilet facilities are available adjacent to the playing area.

£5.00 per session

Local bus route and off-road parking available.

We welcome new players – Please note though, that due to the current Covid-19 measures, this session is not currently available on a ‘drop-in’ basis. All new participants should first contact mike@activlives.org.uk or call 07531 236442. We would love to hear from you!
