Activ Walking Football

ActivLives currently have one weekly Walking Football group who play outdoors, in Ipswich, at Gainsborough Sports Centre, IP3 0SP, every Thursday morning. 

This session is targeted at participants who are 55 years of age and over (This age restriction does not apply to women players). It is led by an experienced Session Leader and consists of a group warm up, refereed games and a stretch cool down. Sessions are currently held outdoors on an all-weather surface. The session fee is £5 and is paid on the day. 

This is small-sided football, with rule adaptions, to accommodate an older, and generally less mobile, age group. There is no running or intentional physical contact allowed. This is a great way to keep playing a team sport, with a very friendly group of people. These sessions are for participants who, for whatever reason, are not able to play standard football. 

These sessions are primarily social rather than competitive. 

We always welcome new players, irrespective of their football experience or fitness level.
