New sessions starting in the New Year!

From January 2019 we have even more opportunities for you to get involved in.


The Community Trust have a new FREE course of Football Fans in Training (FFIT) commencing Thursday 17th January.  The 13 week programme includes an initial health check on the first session, with 13 weekly sessions being split between classroom health and education and physical activity sessions. The sessions start at 6pm until 7:30pm and the group will be meeting at the main entrance, 15 minutes before the session.  Male participants, aged 35-65, are eligible to take part in this programme if they have a BMI of 28+ or a waist size of 38+ inches.  Interested?  This is a bookable course so if you wish to come along please call Nathan on 01253 348 691.

Want to get active?

Masters Football is a chance for 35+ year olds to continue playing 5-aside football in a social environment.  The sessions will take place outdoor on a Monday evening at: Playfootball Blackpool, Garstang Road West, FY3 7JH,  6pm – 7pm.

Walking Football Under 60’s

Blackpool FC Community Trust are launching a new Walking Football session open to anyone under the age of 60.  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.  This will, again, take place at Playfootball Blackpool at 6pm – 7pm.

Both sessions above will commence from Monday 7th January 2019.

In addition to our existing Walking Football provision we have a new Over 50’s session starting.  This will take place at Blackpool and the Fylde College, Ashfield Road, FY2 0HB, commencing; Wednesday 9th January, 5:30pm – 6:30pm, in the sports hall.  Can’t make that time?  We run more sessions every Monday and Thursday (excluding bank holidays), at PlayFootball:

Monday: 4.30pm-5.30pm

Thursday: 4.15pm-5.15pm

The sessions are £4 each.  For more information please contact Michael on 01253 348 691 or email to find out when the next sessions take place.
