Walking Football is exactly what it sounds like – a standard of the game of football where players walk instead of run.’ It’s designed to help people get fit or maintain an active lifestyle, as well as to support people getting back into football that may have given up due to age, injury or lack of opportunity. Older people who play have seen many benefits including, lower heart rate and blood pressure, weight loss, muscle build and better mobility.
It’s not just health benefits – walking football also offers social benefits. Participants can meet new people, avoid becoming isolated, and interact with individuals and small groups. This is one sporting activity that may be just suitable for all. Living the same routine year after year can sometimes make people feel like they’re going through the motions. However, joining in a physical activity with a group of people your age can be a breath of fresh air, make you laugh and give you a good time. It’s a great way to get out more, meet new people and feel better. We all want to stay mobile and continue enjoying our daily activities independently. Doing a bit of regular activity will keep you feeling healthy and happier in and during later life.
