Walking football is the fastest growing and newest version of the beautiful game where players walk instead of running. We have a strict policy of no running (with or without the ball).
Designed to provide exercise and health benefits for people mainly over 50 years old, by helping older people get fit or maintain an active lifestyle no matter what their age and fitness, as well as support people getting back into football if they have given it up due to age, injury or circumstance.
Overall we hope players achieve a lower heart rate, blood pressure, less fat and more muscle … and better mobility.
Walking football also offers many social benefits/events such as golf with opportunities to interact with individuals and small community groups whereby you can make new friends, thus reducing isolation and loneliness.
For players who wish to play in competitive leagues and Internationals there are plenty of opportunities available.
Sessions are open to players male or female of any ability over 50 years of age for men and 40+ for women, which are held at the Elmbridge Xcel Leisure Complex, Walton-on-Thames.
For more information please read our Introduction page.
Some of our walking football sessions are led by Coaches from Chelsea and Fulham Foundations, hence booking for them are made directly via their websites.
