Walking Football

Walking football is a game of skill, not pace or strength. Players can be male or female, in great shape or not very active. This growing sport is as popular for the friendship and support it offers as well as for the fitness benefits it brings. Team work and skill characterise walking football. You don’t have to be fit or have played football before to take part, though you are advised to take it easy to start with until your fitness levels improve. Teams are supportive and welcoming and everyone can have a go – if you can walk, you can play!

Contact the organiser before turning up to make sure there are spaces and to check about appropriate clothing and footwear (trainers might not be suitable for some surfaces).

Cambourne

Nigel Hillyard, who runs Cambourne Town Amblers WFC (formerly South Cambs Amblers WFC), would be delighted to hear from women and men over 50 who’d like to have a go at walking football. Walking football rules tend to vary from group to group – Nigel’s  group play three touch, and are stricter than many clubs regarding the no physical contact and no tackling rules. This ensures a safer playing environment and fewer injuries. Contact details can be found here.
