What is Walking Football?

  • It is low-impact, team-based exercise, utilising the defined ‘Walking Football Rules and Formats’ specifically non-contact with the players ‘always having one foot on the ground’.
  • Matches are played with modified formats (4v4/5v5/6v6) on smaller pitches with shortened game times and smaller goals.
  • Walking Football aims to provide participants physical & mental health benefits, social contentedness and promotion of the benefits of ongoing physical activity.
  • Our Walking Football program is aimed at individuals over 45 years of age.

 

Game Rules:

  • Running is not allowed. A participant always has to have one foot on the ground.
  • It is a non-contact version of the game.
  • The ball cannot be kicked above head height.
  • There is no heading of the ball.
  • There are no ‘referees’ as such and the competitive angle is kept to a minimum.
  • The focus is on fun and making friends.
