Walking Football at HP

Walking Football

Ensuring all generations can still enjoy the game

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOUR PLAYING DAYS WERE OVER!

Walking Football is a slower paced version of football aimed at encouraging older adults to play again on a regular basis.

With all the same rules of standard football, the only difference is players are not allowed to run. This means the game relies less on a players physical attributes such as; speed, power and stamina, and more on accurate passing, good positional play, and strong tactical knowledge.

Designed to give footballers over the age of 50 years old the opportunity to re-live their playing days and stay active, walking football can be played at any level of skill and is open the men and women of all ages and abilities.

If you want to get involved in playing contact Fay for details of a session near you.
