Walking Football has arrived in Chalgrove and if you're aged 50+ and looking to keep fit this could be good for you.
The press release (in our Documents) states:
Along with the GoActive Project set up by South Oxfordshire District Council Walking Football is coming to Chalgrove and we need persons’, gentlemen in particular, however, ladies are welcome, to participate in the fast rising sport of Walking Football.
It is particularly aimed at gentlemen of 50+ years of age who may be in need of some enjoyable exercise by going back to their earlier years and play football once again.
We are playing on an all weather pitch/court on the recreation ground in Chalgrove and the rules are quite simple in that players MUST keep a MINIMUM of ONE FOOT on the ground at all times and must not run, trot gallop at any time whilst on the pitch. Teams can range from 4/5 a-side to a maximum of 8 a-side playing for between 6 and 12 minutes per half. The only compulsory clothing is that all players wear trainers, plimsoles or similar footwear. Coloured bibs will be provided to distinguish between teams.
Our first session will be on Wednesday 9th March starting at 11:00 am with our second session on Friday 11th March starting at 12noon and the cost will be £3 per session or £5 for two sessions in one week.
So, make the break from the armchair and join us at the recreation ground for exercise and social inter-action play the sport you used to love and never thought you would play again.
