The game, a slower paced version of the sport which is accessible to all regardless of age, health and ability, has experienced a strong organic growth in recent years and has acted as the catalyst in attracting many people back into football due to its various health and fitness benefits and a strong sense of fun and enjoyment.
Normally played at 5 or 6-a-side, in smaller 7v7/futsal goals, and with a few other adjustments, Walking Football allows those who may otherwise have had to give up playing to continue their playing days, as well as providing huge health and social benefits. Many sessions see players staying behind for a cup of tea and a chat.
The Laws of the Game for Walking Football have recently been launched by The FA.
