Both tournaments were hotly contested in the best spirit of Walking Football with an emphasis on enjoyment, taking part and keeping fit and healthy. However, with all competitions there are winners and they were for the Over 50s Hampshire WF One and the Over 60s Portsmouth.

Some of the teams have already booked themselves in for next year’s tournament!!
