Walking Futsal


Established 2015, now with over 50 regular players in three weekly sessions.

Building community through playing fun football and fellowship. Walking football has democratised our wonderful team sport like no other format of the game. For all ages; ladies and gents; beginners to veterans. Our sessions provide informal and fun matches; slower paced games with no running and no contact. The games are played in the right spirit, with respect and thought for others, so there’s no need for referees (our coaches are there to organise, ensure you have a good time and provide individual assistance).

We play ‘Fast Futsal‘ – a slightly modified version of the game that keeps the ball moving, and we apply a ‘MiniFutsal™‘ format (smaller pitch) which focuses play on skill and strategy rather than physical attributes.
