ActivLives currently have one weekly Walking Football group meeting outdoors in Ipswich at Gainsborough Sports Centre, IP3 0SP on a 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 a 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 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 a team sport - please note that it is for participants who, for whatever reason, are not able to play regular small-side football.
These sessions are primarily social rather than competitive.
