Football

So far there has not been much enthusiasm for the walking football so let's try the 5 a side version.
We're just trying to judge the possible demand before investing in a pitch so if you think you might be interested please put your names down on the list in reception.

It would be good if we could raise several teams - perhaps mens, ladies and mixed? and set up a league in the area?

I'm a sceptical about this walking football so don't want to commit as yet.
I'd like to see a part of a match first any ideas?

There is aBarclays Bank advert on at the moment which shows the game being played and I thought it looked fun. The rules are the same as the proper game - 11, 5, 6 or seven a side the only difference being the players are not allowed to run.

I was trying to encourage some of the bowlers yesterday regarding 'Walking Football' and they were quite positive as they are already quite fit and healthy.

The idea is to get people using their bodies which goes a long way towards being healthy and keeping away from the dreaded doctor.

Creating a league would be wonderful with away matches to who knows where?  O0 Anfield maybe!! O0 calm down calm down  O0

The rules are quite simple, No running, No sliding tackles, No goalies, No passes above waist height.

The goals are also only about waist height and not as wide as normal.
