Walking Football is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle despite their age, as well as getting those back playing football who had to stop due to injuries.
As the name suggests, Walking Football is non-contact and anyone that sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play will be penalised with a free-kick awarded to the other team.
The game is played on a pitch 20/40 yards in length and 15/30 yards in width with a size 4 Futsal, with the game restarted via a kick, roll or throw-in.
Plenty of breaks for stretching and water occur and a full medical screening process is advised.
Here's what a few of the players think:
"I am very much interested in Walking Football because it's got a good social aspect, it's a good place to meet new friends, it keeps you fit and it's a lot better than the alternative, which is doing nothing!"
"I had to pack up playing 11v11 over 30 years
There are centres for Walking Football popping up all over the County. We have a list of those we know about here.
