Walking football is different to regular Association Football in many ways and is aimed at the over 50’s age group.

It has very specific rules that outlaw all running and allows no contact between players. Over-head height restrictions and indirect free kicks ensure that the sport is played safely with full consideration to the participants’ age.

As a result of these rules, games are played at a slower pace thus reducing the threat of pain, discomfort and injury, with players briskly walking through matches. This allows people who have loved the sport all their lives to once again safely get back to playing and also introduces the sport to people who perhaps have never considered playing before.

Newhaven FC’s Walking Football sessions run 6pm-7pm on Thursdays at the Downs Leisure Centre Seaford.
