WHAT IS WALKING FOOTBALL?
Over 50’s walking football is bringing people together at locations across the country – bringing them back to playing a 5-a-side version of the beautiful game. The benefits are widespread: in addition to enhancing fitness, evidence is emerging that playing walking football for fun with a group of new friends generates improvements in mental and social well-being. Our group’s focus is therefore on everyone enjoying the experience, rather than keeping the score.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
We run 3 indoor sessions a week: Monday and Friday at Five Rivers Leisure Centre from 9am to 11am and Wednesday at Amesbury Sports Centre from 8pm to 9pm. Everyone is welcome to come along and take part – in fact, we pride ourselves on making all new players welcome, regardless of skill level. Everyone in the group is happy to offer colleagues encouragement and support, both on and off the pitch.
Come along and see us in action – better still, bring some trainers and a drink, pay the £3 session fee and join in (there are no joining fees or subscriptions and you play only when it suits you).
