Walking Football - Gamlingay

If you're interested in football, want to get active or just want to socialise while exercising, then walking sports could be for you!

These sessions are perfect for all fitness levels and a great way to improve mental health.

Walking football is aimed at people over 40’s age and upwards. It is different to regular football as all running is banned, instead players briskly walk through matches and zero physical contact is permitted between players, this is to ensure that the sport is played safely for the participants’ age, the ball is not permitted to travel above head height. As a result of these rules, it means that  the game is played at a slower pace which reduces the threat of pain, discomfort and injury. This means that both those who have loved the sport all their lives and those who have never considered playing football before can get involved safely.
