Walking football is a popular, and growing, format of the game

Walking Football

It's Time To Walk The Walk

Walking Football, is a slow-paced version of the beautiful game aimed at getting players back involved in the sport. 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. There are plenty of breaks for stretching and water, however a full medical screening process is advised beforehand.

So, how does Walking Football work?

  • It’s 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 relies less on physical attributes and instead upon technical ones, such as accurate passing and good positional play.
  • 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.
