General Details

ActivLives currently have two weekly Walking Football groups meeting in Ipswich at Gainsborough Sports Centre, IP3 0SP on a Thursday afternoon and at Whitton Sports Centre, IP1 6LW on a Friday afternoon. 

Both of these sessions are for participants (women or men), who are over 55 years of age. They are led by a Session Leader and consist of a group warm up, refereed games and a stretch cool down, followed by a cuppa and a biscuit upstairs in the Community Room. Sessions are usually held indoors although the Whitton group go outside in the summer months. The session fee is £5/5.50 and is paid on the day. 

This is small-sided football but with rule adaptions to accommodate an older age group. There is no running or physical contact allowed. This is a great way to keep playing football - please note that it is for players who are not able to play regular small-side football. 

These sessions are primarily social rather than competitive.
