Walking football is a popular, and growing, format of the game

Walking Football

Walking Football is a new format of football aiming to encourage more older adults to play football regularly.

Walking Football comprises of the same rules as standard football, except players are not permitted to run. As a result the game relies less on physical attributes such as; speed, power and stamina, and more on accurate passing, good positional play, and strong tactical knowledge as opposed to speed and power.

The Berks & Bucks FA are always interested in new innovative ideas that encourage individuals to regularly participate in football. This particular format engages an age group that isn’t normally associated with playing the game, but with people living longer and continuing to stay active we would like to give people the opportunity to re-kindle their playing days, or have a go at something new!

Very few team sports are tailored for older adults meaning they miss out on the social benefits that are associated with these. Over the upcoming months we will be introducing a number of Walking Football across our area:
