Are you aged 50 + and would like to have a leisurely game of walking football while getting to meet new people having a natter over a tea or coffee?

On the ball

From 9th January 2020 you'll be able to sign up for walking football at Moss Side Leisure Centre. Whether you're completely new to the game or played football when you were younger, walking football will add a new lease of life to your week. 

Match prep

All players are asked to complete a registration form when they first join of which is only kept by the team, this is mainly for medical purposes.

Get your gear

Just turn up in comfortable sports clothing and trainers or football boots (no studs/moulds). If you have goalkeeper gloves or shin pads please feel to bring them along but it is not a necessity.

What to expect?

The main ethos of the sessions is the social aspect, if you are majorly competitive, then perhaps these sessions are not quite suited to your needs. The sessions are fun and free-flowing. Depending on numbers you may play the whole hour or if there are teams, you will play in rotation.

Main rules:

  • No overhead height
  • Walking, not running!
  • Keeper stays in the area.
