Walking Football

Walking Football

Walking football is a variation of the traditional game that is designed to make it more accessible to players of all ages and abilities.

What is Walking Football?

It is low-impact, team-based exercise, utilising the defined ‘Walking Football Rules and Formats’ – specifically non-contact with the players ‘always having one foot on the ground’.

Matches are played with modified formats (5v5/6v6) on smaller pitches with shortened game times making it a great option for people who want to enjoy the sport without the physical demands of traditional football.

Walking Football aims to provide participants with physical & mental health benefits, social contentedness and promotion of the benefits of ongoing physical activity.

How Walking Football is played

  • Running is not allowed. A participant always has to have one foot on the ground.
  • It is a non-contact version of the game.
  • The ball cannot be kicked above head height.
  • There is no heading of the ball.
  • There are no ‘referees’ as such and the competitive angle is kept to a minimum.

It is a fun and inclusive way to stay active and socialise with others.
