Bridlington Town AFC and the Sporting Memories Group are setting up a walking football club at Queensgate starting on Thursday 24th March, 1pm – 3pm.
Dig out your boots and don’t worry about those shin pads anymore! Pies and peas will be served post match.
Walking football is a slower paced version of the beautiful game introduced to encourage older adults to play again on a regular basis.
The game comprises of the same rules as standard football except that running is oﬀ-limits – this includes jogging! But you can ‘walk’ as fast as you want, as long as “one foot is in contact with the ground at all times”. We play on small pitches with small goals and typically six-a-side teams. These small changes make it slower paced and accessible to all regardless of age, health and ability.
Walking Football is aimed at men over 50 and women over 40. However, Walking Football can be played by any age group, due to the lack of contact and no running.
