Walking Football

Walking Football has picked up pace in Gloucestershire. With over 20 registered centres already running, and a walking football league taking place there are plenty of opportunities to dig out your boots and lace-up again. This social sport is perfect for those yet to try out football as well as those who are returning to the game. With walking football, it’s never too late to start playing!

Gloucestershire FA has teamed up with a number of local partners to deliver this slower-paced version of the beautiful game across the county, engaging over one-hundred people over the age of 50 and helping them to lead a more healthy and active lifestyle.

These sessions are suitable for those of all abilities and genders, regardless of whether you have played football previously or not. Pick a session and head on down to play the fastest growing format of football in the UK.

If you are a coach, club, leisure centre, college or any other sports provider and would like to set up a Walking Football Centre then please contact Jack Stanbury on 01454 615888 or Jack.Stanbury@gloucestershirefa.com who can support your application and the development of football opportunities.
