What is walking football? 

It’s a slower version of the beautiful game, suitable for men and women over the age of 50 and for those with an illness. It’s played indoors on a pitch the same size as a 5-a-side pitch.

Along with allowing participates to play a variant of football and gain exercise, walking football allows players the opportunity to build relationship with acquaintances new and old.
