Walking Football was established at Thatcham Tornadoes as of October 2017.
Fridays on the astro at St Bartholomews School, Newbury
£3 per session (from November 2017)
New players very welcome to come along and join us. At the moment, it is Friday night training only, but watch this space ... we may well be entering a team into the FA People's Cup in 2018!!
Walking Football is aimed at getting players back into football but at a slightly slower pace. We are aiming these sessions at players aged 50-ish and older.
There's no running on or off the ball, very little contact and kick-ins instead of throw-ins. There is less stress on the body and no real sudden change of direction to put undue stresses on the body.
Walking football is becoming increasingly popular across the country and is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle, as well as encouraging people back into football who have stopped due to age or injury.
