Walking Football

Do you love football, but maybe not quite up to running round a pitch any longer?

Why not join us for Walking Football, with men and women, who enjoy football and physical activity?

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

· The pitch we use is a self-contained, outdoor, artificial turf pitch, with small goals and a wire net around the outside

· It is slightly larger than a 5-a-side pitch, so would ideally suit 6-a-side

· 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
