Glasgow on the Ball Walking Football / The Fair Play Foundation are delighted to announce we have secured funding to deliver a brand-new Walking Football programme at venues across Glasgow.
Building on both the work of the existing On The Ball teams and our Active Age/Seniors programme, On The Ball Walking Football programme will commence in May and ensure more individuals can access the benefits of the beautiful game for longer.
The health benefits of Walking Football are now well established.
Studies in the UK and Denmark have revealed how Walking Football is helping many men win battles against depression, mental illness and anxiety, especially around retirement age. Indeed, research by Ashton University into older males exposed to lifelong football found they had high levels of ‘flow’ while playing football – a state of psychological reward and satisfaction.
