Walking football is a rapidly developing area of the beautiful game for those over 50. It is recognised as a great way of improving overall health and fitness for those of older years with its combination of physical and mental activity, together with improving their social contacts. In doing so, this supports the principle of ‘Active Ageing’ by adding to the health and wellbeing of all those who play.
Think of 5- or 6-a-side football, and then imagine playing it. Not running, but walking. Add in the absence of robust tackling and you’ll have a good idea of Walking Football.
The group has two weekly sessions:
> Mondays 18:30-20:00, Yateley Hockey Club, RG27 0NQ (4G Pitch)
> Thursdays 14:00-15:30, Yateley Hockey Club, RG27 0NQ (4G Pitch)
Anyone over 50 or with a limiting medical condition is welcome to join because life should be a walk in the park – ideally with a football!
Simply turn up and play for the fun of it or Contact Us for more details.
