In conjunction with the Surrey FA, Surrey Heath Borough Council have recently launched Walking Football sessions on the ‘3G’ all-weather pitch at Frimley Lodge Park.
Walking Football is an adapted but equally fun form of the game for the over 50s, and has recently seen an explosion in popularity as a result of the recent Barclays advert which showcases it. In addition to keeping people active, it aims to re-engage individuals who may have thought their football playing days were over. The manner in which the sport is played promotes cardiovascular fitness whilst producing the least stress on the body, making it ideal for those who have been told to ‘slow down’.
The sessions, which are open to all, take place on Wednesday lunchtimes from 1pm-2pm with a nominal charge of £2 per week to cover the costs of a facilitator.
To find out more or to book a place at an upcoming session, please contact Craig.Alford@surreyheath.gov.uk.
