Walking Football is focused on enabling people over 50 (also a female-only session for over 30’s) to get involved in sport and physical activity.
There are five sessions held at Poolfoot Farm Sports & Leisure Complex in Thornton on a weekly basis giving the opportunity for more men and women to keep active with us.
The Walking Football sessions run by Fleetwood Town Flyers FC and the ladies only session run by the Fleetwood Town Community Trust are growing week on week.
Jason Sharp, Community Trust Manager said, ‘The walking football sessions have gone from strength to strength and Fleetwood Town Flyers FC regularly play in competitive games and tournaments. Walking Football promotes the social and inclusion side of the game along with exercise and enjoyment’
We have noticed the positive impacts the football sessions are having on those that attend, whether it be socially, physically or for mental wellbeing.
