Walking Football

Walking Football

​Why not give it a go?

By now we have all heard about Walking Football - the beautiful game at a slower pace.

A minimum physical contact version of the beautiful game for men and women aged 50 years or more, which is also suitable for people who may have had mobility, fitness or health problems which prevents them from playing a faster paced game.

Following on from the success of Walking Football first being launched in October 2014 at Stanley Park Sports Ground in Chippenham, Wiltshire FA are pleased to announce that we now have Walking Football in operation at various venues across Wiltshire. The sessions operate under the FA's initiative of 'Just Play' - which encompasses the 'turn up and play', 'recreational', 'informal' ethos of football, so if you want to attend more than one session a week - be our guest!

Playing the game at walking pace is a fantastic way to keep fit, it reduces the chance of injury and falls and also is a great way to meet new and like-minded people.

Walking football brings back the memories of youth without most of the pain associated with exercise.  Team sports assist you to get a bit fitter with the help of others - something that jogging or gym work does not!
