What is Walking Football?

Walking Football is a slow paced version of the beautiful game aimed at over 50’s (male and female). It is non-contact with the Walking Rule defined as ‘always having one foot on the ground’. It  also aims to provide players the opportunity to continue playing or participate in football for the first time in a fun, sociable and inclusive environment.

The program focuses on passing rather than speed/running; flexible with its formats and accessible to the community and prospective players. The partnership between Football NSW and NSW Government – Family & Community Services will develop sustainable and ongoing programs to encourage older people to make exercise a normal part of their routine.

The program will highlight the health, wellbeing and social benefits of regular football and exercise activities for older people.

Football NSW Walking Football programs are designed to help people maintain an active lifestyle; and promote participation of the beautiful game in a fun, inclusive and social environment.
