walking football at hassocks sports centre

Walking Football is a slow-paced version of the beautiful game aimed at the over 50s, so if you thought your footballing days were over, then think again! The game is all about participation, inclusion and fun so if you are under fifty, male or female then don’t worry everyone is welcome.

Walking Football is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle irrespective of their age, as well as getting those back playing football who perhaps had to stop due to injuries. 

We will be starting sessions here on Tuesday 10th January- 7.45pm-9.00pm. This first session will coached by Stephen Pythian – Football Development officer from the Sussex County FA. It will also be FREE! He will provide a brief verbal introduction to the concept, outline the basic rules then do a warm up before moving to a game. Please let us know you are going to be able to attend at reception prior to the 10th January.

As from 17th January, the sessions will run on a weekly basis Tuesdays, 8-9pm in our sports hall and be organised by our lovely member Dan. The cost of the sessions will be- Members (Direct Debit or annual): £4.00/ Non members: £5.00. Please wear appropriate footwear and comfortable clothing. You may get thirsty so it would be advisable to bring a water bottle and a sweat towel. The sessions will be bookable on a weekly basis.
