Walking football is based on traditional football, although it is a different sport with its own rules. It is non-contact, played at walking pace and no balls are allowed above head height. Walking football is equally exciting to both watch and play as traditional football.

Our fun, friendly, informal sessions are open to all. We would especially like to welcome people who might not have engaged in physical activity for a while, as well as those who have an injury, disability or long-term illness, such as dementia. We also welcome carers, friends and family who might like to socialise with others whilst their loved one plays football.

We also run two other Walking Football groups at Goals Football and the UEA Sportspark. For more information about either of these groups, please contact the Age UK Norwich Clubs & Trips Team:

There is also an independent walking football group at Framingham Earl Sports centre from 9-10am every Saturday. For enquiries about this group, please contact Ken O'Leary:
