“A great way for the over 50’s to stay fit in the game they love”

Age shouldn’t stop you playing football. In fact research says there’s no reason why you shouldn’t play when you’re in your fifties, sixties or older. The game is not played as you might see it in the premier league; it is very adaptable, can be played at any level of skill and is open to all abilities.

We are a a mixed bunch of over 50’s walking football enthusiasts relishing in the chance to play the game we all thought had gone from our lives. We have one aim and that is to enjoy ourselves and be part of a team once again, while trying to revive those subtle skills that seem to be somewhere in the back of our minds.

Walking Football, a slow-paced version of the beautiful game aimed at the over 50s, has arrived in Kent with venues popping up all over the country.

Walking Football is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle despite their age, as well as getting those back playing football who had to stop due to injuries.

As the name suggests, Walking Football is non-contact and anyone that sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play will be penalised with a free-kick awarded to the other team. One foot must be in contact with the ground at all times.

Due to the continued advance of the Corona Virus it has been decided that, following government guidelines and more specifically, advice from the FA, we have cancelled all sessions of Canterbury Walking Football for the foreseeable future.

This will be a disappointment to many, and we hope that we can all recommence playing again soon. Rest assured, the committee will keep matters under review.

In these difficult times see our News page for a little light relief.
