Walking football involves no running, jogging, or heading. Physical contact is kept to a minimum – no slide tackling or tackling from behind. The ball has to stay below chest height.
We run a walking football group every Wednesday from 1-2pm. We play 4 quarters of 10 minutes each, with mixed teams of men and women and a variety of age groups and abilities. The coaches at Newcastle United Foundation are all highly skilled, and make sure that everyone feels included and goes home with a smile on their face.
These sessions are free of charge, thanks for kind sponsorship from Sintons.
We always welcome new players – if you would like to give it a try, please contact us to find out more.
