Walking Football

Walk your way to success with Walking Football!

Walking Football is exactly as the name suggests - you play football but at walking pace....no running! This type of football is normally aimed at people over 50, to make it fun, inclusive and more sociable 5-a-side version of the game.

The sport is continuing to grow and develop and alongside the popular demand for recreational walking football, we’re now recognising the increased demand for a competitive element to this slower-paced version of the beautiful game.

Whether you're looking to keep active, stay fit, or simply want to play for the love of the game, Walking Football offers the perfect opportunity to take to the pitch. Walking football is filled with like-minded players who just want to have fun whilst keeping fit as they move away from 11 v 11 football.

Walking Football

social benefits

Walking Football has incredible social benefits for the casual participant. It is an opportunity to meet new people, to be part of a group, and to rekindle a sense of camaraderie within a team environment. Team sport builds confidence, develops friendships, and encourages social opportunities away from the football pitch.

mental benefits

It is proven to improve levels of satisfaction, despite the body having to work hard, the mind was more relaxed and there was a reduction in stress. Due to the continuous thinking and decision making that goes into walking football, participants are more likely to develop a long-term enthusiasm for exercise.

physical benefits

Active adults have a 20-30% reduced risk of premature death and 50% less risk of chronic disease. Older people who play Walking Football have more muscle, harder bones, better cardiovascular systems and more jumping height and strength. This applies especially to women.

How to get Involved

We have created a guide to help those looking to set-up a new adult football team. The guide includes helpful information from setting up the team to increasing awareness; so should you be setting up a team in a brand new club or if you are an established club introducing a new adult team we hope you find the guide of use.
