Why choose this course?

Walking football is simply football without running! Playing the game at a more feasible pace eliminates barriers and provides greater accessibility to the sport. It is available to participants who wish to continue to engage in football, but who may have previously been forced to stop playing the game they love due to age, injury etc.
