Walking Football, a slow-paced version of the beautiful game aimed at getting players back involved in the sport, has arrived in Surrey with venues popping up all over the County. Our sessions are aimed at (but not limited to) over 50s, those coming back from injury and those with lack of mobility.
Walking Football is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle despite their age, as well as getting those back playing football who had to stop due to injuries.
As the name suggests, Walking Football is non-contact and anyone that sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play will be penalised with a free-kick awarded to the other team.
The game is played on a pitch 20/40 yards in length and 15/30 yards in width, with the game restarted via a kick, roll or throw-in.
Simply playing 1 hour a week for 3 months enables players to cover 30 miles and burn 4,200 calories! We have over 300+ players each week in Surrey taking part in Walking Football.
Plenty of breaks for stretching and water occur and a full medical screening process is advised.
