Women's Walking Football Background

Women's Walking Football

A slower version of the beautiful game

Walking Football is exactly as the name suggests – you play football, walking. This inclusive, fun and sociable version of the game is slow-paced but lacks none of the passion or excitement of the original game.

Whether you’re looking to keep active, stay fit, or simply want to play for the love of the game, walking football offers the perfect opportunity to take to the pitch.

As well as the health benefits associated with most forms of physical activity, i.e. keeping fit and active, there are also many social benefits that come with playing Walking Football.

Regular participant Anita Larkins shared her thoughts on her experience with the groups: “It honestly makes no difference what your level of experience, ability, fitness etc may be, or for that matter, your age. A willingness to give it a go and suitable footwear is all you need, and you’ll soon be reaping the health and wellbeing benefits of keeping active and having fun.

“Dealing with high anxiety and low self-confidence is exhausting and spending time just having fun kicking a ball about with these awesome women, gives me such a lift every week. It continues to be a real buzz, my energy levels have increased and I’m much fitter now, both physically and mentally.”
