Walking football is a popular, and growing, format of the game

Walking Football

Walking Football is exactly as the name suggests - you play football, walking. Usually aimed at people over 50, this inclusive, fun and sociable 5-a-side version of the game is slow-paced but lacks none of the passion or excitement of the original game.

Whether you're looking to keep active, stay fit, or widen your circle of friends, Walking Football offers the perfect opportunity to do just that.

As well as the health benefits associated with most forms of physical activity; keeping fit and active, weight loss etc there are also many social health benefits that come with playing Walking Football too.

Taking time to socialise, meeting new people and developing personal confidence are all part and parcel of taking part in this slower version of the beautiful game that we all love in a safe, fun and inclusive environment.

There are daytime and evening sessions across the week and weekend, so there's a session to suit you.

Walking football
I had to stop playing 11v11 over 30 years ago due to a back injury. It's now sorted so I wanted to get back playing but there was nothing available in my area until I found Walking Football at Harvey Hadden. I'm just mad about playing football, I like watching it but I prefer to be out there playing it, you only live once so get out there and enjoy yourself!
