Walking football is a NO running , NO tackling and with minimal contact for all players of 50+ to enjoy and although its walking football it does provide a good workout. The Thursday session is actively looking to increase our lady membership numbers so we welcome everyone to come and try it. For the more energetic amongst us we also have a VETS Football session on a Friday evening 6.00pm -7.00pm at the same venue.
