Walking Football

Walking Football is gathering pace in West Riding!

In 1957, Stanley Matthews became the oldest person to play football for England, at the age of 42 years and 104 days. Now, players across West Riding can try and break his record, (admittedly at a more modest level!)

A slow-paced version of the beautiful game, Walking Football is certainly gathering pace in England, and for good reason. Studies suggest that physically active men have a 20-30% reduced risk of premature death and 50% less of serious illness. 

Aimed at the over 50s, walking Football is intended to help people keep an active lifestyle despite their age. With only 20% of men aged over 55 reporting that they take the recommended half-hour of exercise five times a week, what better way to get fit whilst having fun?
