“I found the walking football a good way to get back some fitness and something you can try and improve your performance week on week in a very friendly encouraging setting from both players and coaches. I’ve met up with old school buddies and made new friends, its good to see people enjoying something they haven’t done for years, even how skilled they still are!”
“I enjoy the Walking Football session at The Parks, as at age 71, it is a good way to maintain a reasonable level of fitness, and it also promotes social interaction through team bonding. The Parks provides an excellent playing environment for this both indoors and outdoors.”
“I really enjoy the walking football sessions; it brings back happy memories of my football days more than 30 years ago. For a 66 year old man it helps towards my weekly health programme, but added to this I have also become acquainted with many of the other players so it has become a bit of a social event, which is very enjoyable. After the session many of us go and have refreshment and have discussion about the football and things in general. It has become something to look forward to every week and is a big miss if couldn’t make it.”
