Walking Football, as the name suggests, is a slow-paced version of the beautiful game which is aimed specifically at the over 50’s,
The game is a great way for the older generation to continue to enjoy sport, stay active and keep fit.
Walking Football has grown massively over the last few years and football community trusts around the county run regular sessions. Here’s what some of our players say,
“Once again I can enjoy playing the game I love, we make new friends and the banter is great.”
Paul, Derby County
Les who plays Walking Football at Blackpool said I retired 6 years and started piling on the weight. Then I tried walking football, I’ve lost two stone and feel much healthier.”
The Walking Football Cup
The EFL Trust runs the Walking Football Cup every year around May and June. EFL Clubs through their community trust each hold a local competition. The winners then represent their club and play in their official colours at a regional level. The top two in each region then qualify for the finals which was this year played at Aston Villa’s training ground.
Nicol Meredith, from the EFL Trust comments, “Those dreams you have as a child of playing for your local team never truly go away, so the competition that teams represent in their local club and play in their colours.”
