If you like football and think you’re past it, think again!
Fancy doing something fun, physically and mentally beneficial with an opportunity to meet like minded people then why not check out walking football?
Walking football offers a multitude of health benefits to older people such as reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke while improving blood pressure.
Positive changes in postural balance, blood pressure and resting heart rate, lowered cholesterol, improved blood sugar levels, bone density, and improving reactions, whilst slashing the odds of suffering from type 2 diabetes – all indicators of general good health.
There are also many psychological and mental health advantages to playing Walking Football – namely high levels of personal reward and satisfaction with reduced levels of stress and exertion while playing, despite working physically hard.
Walking football also gives an often isolated section of the community the chance to become involved in something they really enjoy, make new friends, form lasting relationships with like-minded people and generally improve their social circle and overall quality of life, often making them feel less isolated and more a part of the wider community.
So if you are over 50 (men) or over 40 (women) and fancy giving walking football a go, then come and see us at:
Greenfields Sports Association (Market Drayton Town FC)
Any Tuesday or Thursday 2pm – 3pm.
