No sprinting - No running - and don't even think about jogging!
Walking Football is exactly as the name suggests - you play football, at walking pace
Usually aimed at people over 50, 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; keeping fit and active, weight loss etc., there are also many social health benefits that come with playing Walking Football
Taking time to socialise, meet new people or even build confidence are all part and parcel of taking part in this slower version of the beautiful game
Sadly, there isn't a universally accepted set of rules currently in force. The Football Association and the Walking Football Association have both produced their own versions.
At Charlbury Walking Football we tend to adhere to the FA Rules. Key to our sessions though is an understanding that physical contact is avoided and walking is a 'must'
After our Wednesday sessions, many of players stay for a mug of tea or coffee at the Centre's Cafe and a chance to have a good chat about things...
We have also been known to organise the odd pub visit and Christmas meal out!
