Town community department start-up walking football sessions
- Walking Football
- Venue 360 every Wednesday 6pm to 7pm
- Calling all over 50s Hatters fans - its time to get your boots back on!
Starting this week the Hatters Community department will be running a weekly walking football session at Venue 360 for anyone over 50 who is looking to get back playing the beautiful game - only slightly slower!
If you’ve not tried it before and think what’s the point, then believe us when we say that last year’s tournament was extremely competitive – especially when Norwich turned up in the first team coach with a ‘Mourinho’ as manager! Of course, the sessions we will be running will be really about getting fit and so can be as competitive or as friendly as you want – the real benefit is exercising without really thinking about it. Just think about the health benefits for a second – more muscle, harder bones and better cardiovascular systems that can help you build strength, lose weight and improve core stability – think how much better you will feel sinking a pint after all that!
The rules are simple, the same as five-a-side, if you can cast your memory back that far, except if you run, you concede a free-kick!
We will be running every Wednesday evening from this week between 6-7pm on the astroturf cages at the back of Venue 360 and really hope to see as many of you as possible. Don’t worry if you haven’t pulled a shirt on for 20 years or you are think you might lack a bit of confidence – everybody will be in the same boat, so why not come along for the fun?
The cost of each session will be just £5 and you can simply pay and play with no commitment to play regularly – you can miss a week or two and play whenever you feel up to it.
