Walking Football at the FDC

Due to popular demand and overwhelmingly positive feedback, we are pleased offer Walking Football sessions every Monday, from 10.30am-12.30pm and Friday, 10am until midday at the Football Development Centre, Bowthorpe.

While not aimed exclusively at the over-50’s, Walking Football has proven to be extremely popular with this age group as well as those recovering from injury, given that the game is played at a walking pace with any running punishable by a free kick.

So if you miss playing the beautiful game or need to ease back into activity, get involved. Come along and try something new, walk off some calories, have some fun and afterwards you will be able to enjoy a hot cup of tea (or something stronger!) at the FDC bar.

For those of you that are curious or still undecided, you can check out some photographs from our Flickr page or read the EDP Sport feature on our sessions by clicking here.

Walking Football Tournament

The FDC are set to host a forthcoming 4Sports Walking Football tournament being run in partnership with Norwich SOCA Seniors and EACH Children’s charity.

The tournament will have two age categories; an over 50’s category where all players must be aged 50 or over.

There will also be an over 65 age group where all players must be 65 or over with exception of the Goalkeeper who may be aged 55 or over.

Maximum squads of eight are permitted per team and the cost of entry is £35 – all of which will be going to the EACH charity.

The tournament will be taking place on Sunday 12th November at 10.30am, with fixtures taking place throughout the day. It promises to be an exciting day of Walking Football and most importantly a day where money can be made for EACH charity.
