Walking sports

October 3 2018

Most of the walking versions have the same rules as the standard versions only rather than running to get the ball you walk. One foot must be on the ground at all times.

Try adapted versions of these popular team sports.

Walking football is a variant of the traditional game but played at a slower pace.  It's perfect for people returning to sport after injury, older people wanting to keep active or people with mobility problems. Organised and led by Age UK, this slow paced, non contact version is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle as dribbling, passing and scoring remain important elements of the game.
