What Is Walking Football?

No sprinting - No running - and don't even think about jogging!

Walking Football is exactly as the name suggests - you play football, at walking pace

Usually aimed at people over 50, this inclusive, fun and sociable version of the game is slow-paced but lacks none of the passion or excitement of the original game

Whether you're looking to keep active, stay fit, or simply want to play for the love of the game, Walking Football offers the perfect opportunity to take to the pitch

As well as the health benefits associated with most forms of physical activity; keeping fit and active, weight loss etc., there are also many social health benefits that come with playing Walking Football

Taking time to socialise, meet new people or even build confidence are all part and parcel of taking part in this slower version of the beautiful game

Snickers Protein Just Play Scheme

When you fancy a game...Just Play!

If you just want to play walking football casually, now you can Just Play at Charlbury Community Centre. There’s no need to join a team, play in a league or commit to regular training. Just book online and turn up for a game. We provide the pitch, balls, bibs and teams and a Just Play Organiser looks after the session.

The Rules

Sadly, there isn't a universally accepted set of rules currently in force.

At Charlbury Walking Football we adhere to the

FA Walking Football Laws Of The Game

Key to our sessions though is an understanding that physical contact is avoided and walking is a 'must'

Walking Football in Action

After our Wednesday sessions, many of players stay for a mug of tea or coffee at the Centre's Cafe and a chance to have a good chat about things...

We have also been known to organise the odd pub visit and Christmas meal out!

It's Also Socialable...
