Walking football

  • What is walking football?

    Walking football aims to keep men and women over 50 active and involved in football, it is a social recreation activity that brings many health benefits.

    It enables people who have loved the sport all their lives to get involved again and also provides a platform to introduce the sport to people who perhaps have never considered playing before.
