Walking Football has incredible social benefits for participants. It creates opportunities for friendship, confidence building and encourages social experiences on and off the field. With a wide range of participants, male and female, anyone eligble for our services (over 50) is welcome to join us.
Active adults have a 20-30% reduced risk of premature death abd 50% less risk of chronic disease, but by the age of 55-64, only 32% of men say that they take the recommend of strenuous exercise five times a week.
Older people who play Walking Football have more muscle, harder bones, better cardiovascular systems and more jumping height and strength. This applies especially to women. Older people who participate also have lower heart rates and blood pressure, less fat and better oxygen absorption; and their leg bones have more mineral content which reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
