Pompey in the Community provide Walking Football sessions for people aged 50+ who still have their love for the sport.
The game is small-sided, with no running (on or off the ball), very little contact and kick-ins instead of throw-ins. With less stress on the body and no real sudden change of direction or movements, the game allows the participants to play without apprehension.
Older people in particular have seen many benefits, including lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat, more muscle and more mobility.
As well as offering health benefits, Walking Football offers social benefits – the opportunity for participants to meet new people, prevent isolation and create interaction for individuals and small groups.
