Thousands of people have rediscovered the joys of playing football again thanks to a slowed-down version of the game, where any player caught running concedes a free kick to the opposition.
Walking football is perfect for people who are recovering from a long term injury and want to continue to enjoy playing football, and is kinder to the knees!
The rules are much the same as its speedier cousin, however there are some differences. The squads are smaller (between five and seven-a-side), free kicks are indirect, kick-ins replace throws, there are no offside, the ball must be kept below head height and, of course, anything so much as a jog is prohibited.
So come and give it a try. Sessions are run by a FA coach and open to all abilities.
