Football, even when played among friends, can get a bit intense… we all know that one person who isn’t afraid of a dirty tackle! If you don’t feel up to a full game of footie, Walking Football could be just the thing for you!

It is a variant of association football aimed at keeping people aged over 50 involved with football if, due to a lack of mobility or for other reasons, they are not able to play the traditional game. The sport can be played both indoors and outdoors.

There is now even a Walking Football United, who host yearly tournaments for teams to compete in. You can find your nearest walking football team here.
