Walking football is a football session for those aged 50 where footballers walk instead of run so they can still enjoy the beautiful game and participate in competitive football but at a slower pace.
Walking football offers a range of health benefits, from being actively involved in a sport providing exercise and increased fitness, to offering social opportunities as players become part of a team.
As well as our training sessions, we regularly arrange mini tournaments and matches between our teams, and further afield with fixtures previously having been played against teams from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Birmingham and more.
When: Every Monday
Time: 8pm – 9pm
Location: Reech Community Hub, Sy2 6St (3G)
When: Every Tuesday
Location: Ludlow Football Stadium
Whether you just want a kick about, or to represent our community with the Shrewsbury Town team, if you are interested in attending one of the walking football sessions contact us at [email protected]
What should I wear and bring to the session?
Please wear comfortable sportswear such as a light top and shorts or joggers. In terms of footwear, please bring either trainers or football boots with molded studs only. Please also bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
Can I just turn up?
Yes! You can turn up on the night. On arrival all you will have to do is fill out one of our participant forms so we have your details. This is just in case of emergencies.
What if I have a health condition?
You are still welcome to come. We have participants with a range of health conditions that attend. All health conditions are to be put down on the participant form you will be given, this will make the coach aware of any conditions you may have or medication you may need to take.
What if it is raining?
Weather does not affect us! We are out playing come rain or sunshine, so you get your weekly walking football and exercise.
