Maybe you’ve never considered playing football before, or you’re conscious of making sure you can still participate in a game you’ve always loved. Here at The Zone we are offering Walking football to anyone over the age of 40. At a grass roots level, this sporting phenomenon is proving to be a life changing game for all those involved.

Rest assured this game is no walk in the park, mental strength is needed to stop the urge of running in the game. Our Thursday afternoon sessions are a great opportunity to play, get active and meet new people. In line with The Walking Football Association we ensure that the sport is played safely with full consideration to all players, and most importantly at a pace that suits you.
