17 September 2015

County in the Community are starting walking football sessions, starting next Tuesday...

County in the Community are ready to start Walking Football sessions, the first session will take place on Tuesday September 22nd , Newport. Llanwern High Schoolfrom 5pm-6pm at


The cost of the session is £3 per player and it is hoped that when we are up and running we will arrange friendly matches against other football league clubs. 


Walking football has become increasingly popular. ‘It’s exactly what it sounds like – a standard game of football where players walk instead of run.’ It's designed to help people get fit or maintain an active lifestyle no matter what their age and fitness, as well as support people getting back into football if they have given it up due to age or injury. 

 

Older people who play have seen many benefits: lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat and more muscle, and better mobility.


And it’s not just health benefits - Walking football also offers social benefits. Participants can meet new people, avoid becoming isolated, and interact with individuals and small groups.
