We're kicking off new Walking Football sessions in Beechdale and Eastwood and all February sessions are FREE!
Walking Football is a fun, friendly, and safe way to get physical. Whether you consider yourself a pro, or you've never kicked a ball before, Walking Football is a great opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and enjoy being part of a team. The sessions are open to all, regardless of gender, age, or ability. Come along and add some excitement to your weekly routine!
What is Walking Football?
Walking football is a variant of football that is aimed at older people who, due to a lack of mobility or for other reasons, are unable to play the traditional game. Walking football was devised as a competitive sport by John Croot of Chesterfield FC and there are now thousands of Walking Football teams and sessions all over the UK!
The Age UK Walking Football Programme is funded in partnership with The FA and Sport England, who are investing money raised by National Lottery players into the programme. It’s being delivered across England through local Age UK charities.
