Our Walking Football sessions take place every Wednesday between 11 and 12 at Dunes Leisure.
The numbers attending range from 15 to 25 depending on availability with work, holiday, private commitments. It is just £2 per session to play. The ideal number attending is 20 so we can play four five a side teams who play each other.
It’s fun and great exercise and is open to all men and women over 50. We have one regular female player so if any more ladies want to join in please do. Our youngest player at present is 54 with the oldest well into their 70’s.
New members are always made to feel very welcome.
The only rules we strictly play to are you must walk (obviously), no contact, head height and if you pass back to the ‘keeper you can’t receive the ball back. Simple as that!
We have been invited to play in a friendly 5 aside tournament at Dunes on Sunday July 18th (12-2) against a touring team from Middlesex, Marine and Formby and we will be entering two teams to represent Southport Football Club.
The people who play regularly on a Wednesday have been given the first refusal on places.
If there are enough people interested who can’t attend midweek due to work etc we will put on another pitch on the Sunday to allow others to have a go.
The Walking Football is currently run by Rob Urwin who plays to make up the numbers if an odd number turn up!
