What is Walking Football?
Walking Football is a small-sided, modified version of the game, suitable for all levels of ability and fitness, from people who are returning to sport after a break to those who’ve never played before.
It is a 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’.
Walking Football aims to provide participants physical & mental health benefits, social connectedness and promotion of the benefits of ongoing physical activity.
The national Walking Football programs are run in partnership with Active Ageing Australia offering a social, small-sided version of football specifically modified for older Australians, in metropolitan, regional & remote locations.
Who can play?
Walking Football is suitable for participants of all abilities and fitness levels, with programs delivered in an inclusive, fun and engaging environment for both returning players and those new to the game.
The program aims to promote the health, well-being and social benefits of regular football and physical activity for older people of any skill level or ability.
