What is walking football?

Walking football has become increasingly popular. ‘It’s exactly what it sounds like – a standard game of football where players walk instead of run.’ It is designed to help people get fit or maintain an active lifestyle no matter what their age and fitness, as well as support people getting back into football if they have given it up due to age or injury.

Older people who play have seen many benefits: lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat and more muscle along with better mobility.

And it’s not just health benefits - Walking football also offers social benefits. Participants can meet new people, avoid becoming isolated, and interact with individuals and small groups. A sporting activity that is suitable for all.
