Walking Football

Fun  and exercise.  This very friendly group has members from 60 to 90.  It doesn’t matter if you are not David Beckham and haven’t dribbled a ball in years, if at all! 
Everybody is welcome. 

Walking Football is at a more gentle pace, but it’s good exercise, very social and guaranteed to make you smile.   

· We meet twice a month for an hour’s play.

· We have been playing on a self-contained, outdoor, artificial turf pitch. We will be moving to use an indoor gym, with small goals, from 15th December 2022 onwards

· We pick the teams on the day, depending on the number of people attending

· We do not have people playing for the full hour, but play for 15 minutes or so and then take a break.

Key rules of Walking Football:

· No running or jogging, with or without the ball

· Low impact tackling only

· No offsides

· The ball must not be kicked or deflected by any outfield player, or thrown (by the goalkeeper), above head height

· A player can only kick the ball three times before another player must touch it
