This is a low intensity practical activity delivered by the trust and will be available to all adults who are over the age of 45!

Walking football is quickly becoming the sport to play! It increases cardiovascular fitness levels and helps control weight gain, not to mention gets a group of guys or women together to do something different!

This format of the beautiful game is very similar to the mainstream structure however there are a few modifications. It is non-contact and anyone that sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play will be penalised with a free-kick being awarded to the other team. If the ball goes out of play, the game will be restarted with a kick in.

There is no need to book onto the sessions you are welcome to turn up and try it out!
