WALKING Football Over 50 - Open Age

Walking football – a slower version of the beautiful game!


Walking Football was initially designed to help get the over 50s back into football and exercise. The main differences between standard football are the two rules of no running and no slide tackles.


Play the game you love but reduce the chances of injury. It's a great way to keep fit, learn skills, have fun and socialise all at the same time!


If you think your footballing days are over then think again! If you are 50 and over and can walk and kick a ball then your able to join in!

So, if you used to play football but now find the pace a bit too much or if you’ve never had the chance to be involved before, walking football is the perfect introduction to playing football for people aged 50 years and over.

All the rules are the same but with one big difference, you can only walk – no running, no sprinting, just walking. Any infractions are penalised by free kicks


Deep down, are you still dying to play?


  • A popular means of keeping fit, learning new skills, having fun and socializing!
  • Never too old to play! Non-contact sport!
  • The social aspect of the session as important as the game itself especially as part of Swinton FC and the facilities it has.
