Walking football has taken off in the U.K. and rekindled  a sport we lost, many, many, years ago. If you’re keen to have a go, you can join the group and be part of the craze that is sweeping the UK.

Remember the days before dodgy knees and wonky hips ? Remember the days when you still had ambitions to play for England and be part of the ’66 World Cup squad? Well, it might not be too late!

A few rules:

  • Walking only, no running
  • Non contact
  • No tackles with force
  • No trips, pushes, jumps, holds, slides, obstruction
  • Indirect free kicks awarded
  • Mixed sex
  • Adapt rules to playing area
  • Enclosed pitch – rebounds allowed
  • Keeper only in the area
  • Back passes allowed
  • Keeper stays in the area (unless agreed beforehand)
  • Players not allowed in the area

Moraira U3A International Walking Football Tournament,
25th February 2019 

Moraira WF hosted visiting U.K. team , Manchester Corinthians and Spanish based teams , SAN Miguel Strollers, Formentera, Monte Mentals and two home teams Moraira A and Moraira B . Each team played one another on a League basis , with the top two competing in a one off final for the trophy . The Corinthians, staying In Benidorm and enjoying what the resort had to offer , probably didn’t have the best preparation! Travelling with a big reputation, they finished 2nd bottom . The top two positions were mainly contested by 3 teams : Moraira A and B and Formentera. Despite having the best defensive record Moraira B lost out to Formentera for second position , with Moraira A comfortable league leaders .
