Get involved: Walking Football in Bath

Walking Football is a very fast-growing sport across the UK, and Age UK B&NES has been kept busy running sessions for over 50s across Bath and North East Somerset to meet the rising demand.

The sessions are perfect for those who want to gradually improve their fitness in a social environment, and are suited to all abilities.

Anyone interested can turn up on the day in comfortable clothing and with football boots if they have them (though some are available to borrow in various sizes).

Weekly sessions are as follows:

Mondays 10-11am: Odd Down Sports Ground (Chelwood Drive, Bath) - £4

Wednesdays 2.30 - 3.30pm: Twerton Park (Twerton) - £2

Thursdays 10-11am: Midsomer Norton Leisure Centre (Gullock Tyning) - £4

Thursdays 4.30 - 5.30pm: Chew Valley Leisure Centre (Chew Lane) - £4

Fridays 10-11am: Odd Down Sports Ground (Chelwood Drive, Bath) - £4

Testimonials from some of our regulars:

"After having been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and having two major ops, I didn't think it would be possible to do any exercise. I feel the Walking Football has had a tremendous effect on me, and my personal outlook has changed since taking up sport again." - Harry

"I have never played, nor been interested in football before. I was introduced to Walking Football by my brother-in-law. I think it's a brilliant activity to keep fit and it's been good meeting a group of good people as well." - John
