Walking Football

The same as a normal game of football with one difference, NO jogging, just walking!

 

Walking Football is an innovative twist on the traditional 11 and 5 a side formats. All of the rules are the same but with one difference; you can only walk!

Community Sports Activator, Beth Turner, explained why the sport is particularly suited to those who are looking for something different to try: “When people first hear about Walking Football, they assume that it will be played as a snail’s pace and lack the excitement of the traditional game but they are usually in for a pleasant surprise. The task of passing the ball accurately between team mates without being able to run challenges players both mentally and physically and is ideal for those who want to improve their fitness whilst avoiding the sort of impact injuries that can sometimes be associated with field sports.”

“Although players cannot run it’s certainly not a slow game and it is easy to see why it is becoming such a popular sport. There is always a great sense of camaraderie among the players which makes it ideal for those interested in the social aspect of sport”

The session at Ripley Leisure Centre will start on Monday 5th September 12:00pm - 1:00pm and will be every Monday thereafter. The hour will cost just £2.30 per person.

Anybody who would like to play is welcome! The session will be indoors so you will need to bring a pair of trainers, comfortable clothes and a bottle of water. For more information, please contact Tom Fletcher on 01773 514727 or email tomfletcher@pfpleisure.org
