YOU CAN TALK THE TALK BUT CAN YOU WALK THE WALK?
No Sprinting. No Running And Don't Even Think About Jogging!
Walking Football is exactly as the name suggests - you play football, walking. Usually aimed at people over 50, this inclusive, fun and sociable 5-a-side version of the game is slow-paced but lacks none of the passion or excitement of the original game. Some of the rules vary for Walking Football but it's not less exciting and competition can be just as fierce, but, always orientated towards good natured fun for all.
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.
Bedfordshire FA have teamed up with a number of partners to ensure that Walking Football is provided at locations throughout the county.
