Blackpool FC Community Trust Inclusion department is delivering a highly successful walking football programme for over 50s at Blackpool Sports Centre in partnership with Age UK, Blackpool Council and the Older Men’s Network.
Walking football is a slower version of the beautiful game, which is a minimal contact sport with one main difference to standard football – no running! It is a great way to keep fit, learn new skills, have fun and socialise all at the same time.
Sessions are currently running Monday’s 12.30pm till 1.30pm at Blackpool Leisure Centre but due to the success and demand, Blackpool FC Community Trust and its partners will be also launching a second session a week starting Thursday the 27th of February 5.30pm till 6.30pm with a guest appearance from Ex-Northern Ireland international and Blackpool player Derrick Spence.
Sessions are £3 each and open to anyone aged 50-plus, all standards are welcome. Call Age Uk Blackpool (01253) 622812 to book your place or for more details.
