25 Jan JOIN OUR WALKING FOOTBALLERS
Over 50 years of age?
Would like to stay fit and active?
Have a passion for the beautiful game?
Why not join our walking footballers?
As the name suggests, Walking Football is a slow-paced version of the beautiful game which is often aimed specifically at the over 50’s age group (but here at WWSET can be played by anybody)!
The game is a great way for those who are no longer willing or able to play the game they love at full speed, still stay active and keep fit.
It’s generally accepted that as you get older the opportunity to participate in team sports lesson – ironically at the age when you most need to keep active, both physically and socially.
Walking Football is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle despite their age or physical condition, as well as getting those back playing football who have previously had to stop for whatever reason.
Despite the fact that no running is allowed, the walking format of football is surprisingly tiring, and you certainly work up a sweat. Simply playing 1 hour a week for 3 months enables players to cover 30 miles and burn 4,200 calories!”
In addition to the physical benefits gained from getting involved, there are huge social benefits as well. The sessions run by WWSET, which are done in partnership with our local Berks & Bucks County FA, are extremely relaxed and the guys who already attend are a very friendly bunch, who love nothing more than a laugh and a joke.
