Walking football session to improve fitness and wellbeing
In collaboration with Surrey Heartlands and the Royal Surrey Hospital, we are proud to be running Walking Football sessions, helping to inspire and support people with long-term health conditions to build physical activity into their lives.
Taking place every Friday at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford from 11am - 12pm, the sessions are friendly, safe and suitable for all to take part.
The sessions are adapted to participants’ needs and help individuals build their own journeys to sustaining regular physical activity, regardless of diagnosis and stage of recovery and current activity levels.
The sessions are free of charge for anyone, and their family, who are looking to stay active in a group setting with a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. No experience of football is needed, as the sessions are designed to introduce new players to the game.
Walking football has adapted rules, to ensure there is no running and no contact with other players. This format allows participants to play without apprehension and at their own pace. It is a great way to maintain physical activity and experience the benefits of exercise in a group setting.
