join the walking football community

No need to hang up your boots just yet!

If you feel that the normal pace of football is getting too much for you to keep up with, whether due to injury or else, the alternative that is walking football, allows you to keep enjoying this beautiful game.

Walking football is an inclusive sport that encourages older generations to become part of a community. The sport gives older people, who may not have regular social activities, an opportunity to interact with others, make friends, and exercise. Ultimately, walking football has a positive impact on a person’s mental and physical well-being.

Small tweaks are made to the infamous ball game so older people can participate, such as kick-ins rather than throw-ins and no running whatsoever. These changes reduce stress on the body so older people can still play the infamous sport. By joining a team, people can be reunited with a sport that they may have had to give up because of the restrictions that come with aging.

We’re here to provide relevant information on walking football, from the latest tournaments and upcoming events.
