Blackpool FC Community Trust have launched a new Walking Football session open to anyone between 35 and 60 years old. Walking football is played 5-a-side with specific rules in place such as; no running, no contact between players and the ball must remain below head height. This is an opportunity for all abilities to restart playing football at a slower pace but also introduces the sport to people who may have never considered it in the past. The session takes place at Playfootball Blackpool at 6pm – 7pm on a Monday evening.
“The session has really taken off and we have had good numbers from day one. You will receive a warm welcome in an inclusive and fun environment within a great social group. We hope the time of the session will also be suitable for people who are still working and can’t make the other sessions.” – Dave – Inclusion Officer.
One of the attendees said, “It’s fantastic to be playing football again! Not only that, but it has improved my fitness too!”
Free tea and coffee will be available in the bar area for you to catch up before heading home.
