Walking football offers a slow-paced version of the traditional game, aimed at people with reduced mobility.
New sessions have begun at St George’s Park, Graves, on Mondays from 1pm to 2pm. Try a first session for free then continue at £2 per session if you enjoy the experience.
This sport has become increasingly popular, helping people to keep up an active lifestyle regardless of their age and ability.
It is also a fantastic opportunity to get back into football if you previously played but had to stop, perhaps due to injury.
