We are delighted to announce we are launching a Walking Football session from Tuesday 14 September.
The session will be weekly, every Tuesday 10-11am at The Honeywell Centre.
This session is open to any age and any ability. The session is not directly aimed at participants over a certain age, we do not want to exclude younger players returning from injury or those struggling with health issues.
Walking Football is a unique, small-sided version of Football. As the name suggests, it is strictly walking only with some other rule changes from Association Football. The ball is not allowed above head height, there is no physical contact and only goalkeepers are allowed in the goal area.
"I am extremely excited to launch my first full project Walking Football. I believe it is a great time to launch a session like this, with most Covid-19 restrictions lifted, people can finally start to add some normality back to their lives.
"There are numerous physical benefits of exercise, but the impact it can have on mental health is huge. The pandemic has starved us of social interaction, forcing some people in our community to feel extremely isolated.
"We want our Walking Football session to provide that opportunity now, to reach out to those in the community and provide a chance for them to be involved in something they really enjoy."
