What is Walking Football?
The biggest difference, as the name suggests, is there is no running. Walking football is played at walking pace, with players not allowed to run. This includes with the ball or off the ball, and jogging.
You can ‘walk’ as fast as you want and walking as described in the rules is “one foot must be in contact with the ground at all times.” One other big difference to association football is that it’s classed as non-contact sport. Although tackling is allowed, this must be done with no contact.
Who can take part?
Walking Football is aimed at Over 50s but is open to any aged people keen to get involved. If you are under 50 but are unable to play full contact sport due to injury or health, then Walking Football is a great option for you! It is inclusive of all levels of football experience and ability, if we can get a good number of people taking part, we will be able to provide different grades of walking football including beginners and advanced to accommodate different types of players with males and females mixed in teams.
What do I need to bring?
Players can wear football boots or running shoes, you will need to bring a water bottle and comfortable clothing for outdoor exercise. It is recommended you bring a jacket or sun block depending on the weather conditions forecast on the day.
