50+ Walking Football 

Walking Football is taking place at Duston Sports Centre

If you thought your football career was over, think again! Walking Football is a slower paced version of the game, aimed at the over 50’s.

Smaller pitches and plenty of breaks ensure participants enjoy a safe and enjoyable return to football. The slower pace doesn’t detract from the competition though – it’s much more than a stroll in the park!

Come down and give it a go – we’re confident that once you’ve tried it, you’ll love it! Walking Football is an excellent opportunity for a bit of physical activity and the chance to get out the house and meet new people.

1 hour session includes plenty of breaks.”

Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level. From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, walking netball really is for everyone. All you need to do is fill out the registration form below and bring along to your first session to hand in at reception and then you’re ready to go!
