Walking Football is an inclusive, sociable and fun version of five-a-side football. The rules are adapted so there is no running, and very little contact. With less stress on the body and no real sudden change of direction or cutting movements, the game allows participants to play without apprehension. But the sport is still competitive and play can be tactical, favouring those who take their time to read the pitch around them. The benefits for older age groups are tremendous and can offer an improvement in cardiovascular fitness, joint mobility and co-ordination.
If you would like to take part, please come along to Charles Dickens Centre on Lake Road (PO1 4DY) between 10.30am and 11.30am on Tuesdays.
