You are a fan of football but do not feel fit enough to run behind the ball for 90 minutes? Why not trying your hand (or your foot) at walking football?
The health benefits of playing football and the importance of exercise and social contact for healthy ageing are well established. But sometimes, the physical demands of play at full speed may make it unsustainable for some older adults.
Walking football can be a way of playing football differently. Indeed, it’s enjoyable and moderately demanding and may be an adapted form of exercise for older adults.
