This  group is running successfully but would welcome new members to join our regular sessions so that we have enough players to make the games more enjoyable.

Sessions are held at 2.00 – 2.45 pm on alternate Tuesdays at Egerton Youth Club on Mereheath Lane.  The dates for the May 2018  sessions are 1st, 15th and 29th May.

 

For those who are not aware of what Walking Football is about I hope the following will provide you with information and inspiration: 

There are around 800 clubs in the UK and it is mainly played by people between the ages of 55 and 95.  Briefly, the rules involve no running, no passes over waist height, no slide tackles and minimal physical contact so as to avoid injury.  Typically games are 5 to 6 a side and can be played inside or outside although the latter tends to be favoured.  If you want further information or to see the game in action there are numerous clips etc on YouTube. 

 

If you would like more information or to join the group please contact:
