Are you over the age of 50 and looking for a new way to keep fit and active? If yes, then why not try walking football at Canons Leisure Centre. This September, walking football will be launching at Canons Leisure Centre in Mitcham.

The sessions will take place indoors in the centre's sports hall every week, between 11am - 12pm, starting on Friday 6th September. Led by our partners at AFC Wimbledon, the programme will help you brush up on your football skillls and socialise with like-minded people in a warm and friending environment. 

Walking football is different to regular Association Football in many ways and is aimed at the over 50’s age group.  It has very specific rules that outlaw all running and allows no contact between players. Over-head height restrictions and indirect free kicks ensure that the sport is played safely with full consideration to the participants’ age.

Walking football allows people who have loved the game all their lives to once again safely get back to playing and also introduces the sport to people who perhaps have never considered playing before.


Sessions cost £5 per person with bookings made either online or at reception.
