Walking Football has had a huge success by winning the regional finals to continue onto the finals at St. Georges Park.

Last Saturday, Football League clubs from around the country competed in the Walking Football Regional Finals for a place to compete at St Georges Park on 7th June. 14th May saw the remaining 4 finals take place and Blackpool succeeded by winning their regional finals tournament, which will see them into the final next month. Acting as a prime opportunity to stay active, Walking Football is a brilliant way for the older generation to stay active and keep fit, participating in a sport that they love. A slow-paced version of the game which is aimed specifically at the over 50’s, allows participants to cover 30 miles and burn 4,200 calories over a 3 month period, just by playing for 1 hour a week. Due to popular demand, Blackpool FC Community Trust, and Age UK Lancashire, have launched a Fylde session at Lytham Town FC every Tuesday and Friday 11am-12 noon. Each session costs £3 and is delivered by qualified Blackpool FC Community Trust Coaches. Participants need to wear sports clothing, bring shin pads and wear suitable footwear as the sessions are held outdoors.
