Walking Football Sessions

Weekly sessions set to begin.

7 June 2018

Sessions set to begin at the Mick George Training Academy.

Peterborough United are delighted to announce the creation of a walking football session for male and female participants over 50. The weekly session will start on Friday 22nd June at Mick George Training Academy running from 5-6pm. The sessions cost £3 each. 

Walking football is a variant of association football that is aimed at keeping people aged over 50 involved with football if, due to a lack of mobility or for other reason, they are not able to play the traditional game.

Ran by qualified FA and UEFA Coaches, who will put on fun coaching sessions, as well as over-see games. The sport has a very specific set of rules that outlaw all running and allows either no contact or only minimal physical contact between players.

As a result of these rules, games are played at a slower pace, thus reducing the risk of pain, discomfort and injury, with players briskly walking through matches. This allows people who have loved the sport all their lives to once again safely get back to playing and also introduces the sport to people who perhaps have never considered playing before.

Participants are required to wear appropriate footwear suitable for the 3G, as well as shin pads.
