What is Walking Football?

Walking football is different to regular Association Football in many ways and is aimed at the over 50’s age group. Many tournaments are now catering exclusively for the over 60’s age group.

It has very specific rules that outlaw all running and allows no contact between players. Over-head height restrictions and indirect free kicks ensure that the sport is played safely with full consideration to the participants’ age.

Teams are either 5 or 6-a-side. As a result of these rules, games are played at a slower pace,   thus reducing the threat of pain, discomfort and injury, with players briskly walking through matches. This allows people who have loved the sport all their lives to once again safely get back to playing and also introduces the sport to people who perhaps have never considered playing before.

Health and Wellbeing 

Staying Happy and Healthy is Important 

It's all to easy to sit at home all day and become chair bound and getting physically and emotionally weaker and more isolated. We believe that Walking Football is part of the answer but it takes more than that. 

We all need to be proactive about our health and well being. We are 'fighting the tide' and have to get as physically and mentally tough as we can.

Being of a 'certain age' means that sometimes we find talking about health and emotional wellbeing quite difficult. Below you will find some links to pages which you might find useful. We are not endorsing any sites or products, just giving our wonderful community a choice and voice. 

So let's start with the really important stuff...
