Our walking football sessions have been extremely popular and due to high demand we will be providing an additional session at Clayton Green Sports Centre’s newly refurbished 3G pitches.
The sessions are just like regular football, but rather than running, you walk.
Ages of participants range from 18-78 with a variety of fitness levels so anyone is welcome to come along and join in. Anyone unsure about participating due to their health should contact their GP.
The extra session will be on Fridays, 7-8pm, for just £1 entry.
More than just a kick about
Chorley Council has worked with Chorley FC Community Trust, Active Nation and ABL Health to help tackle some of the health needs of the community.
Over 40 people have been active since the launch of the sessions in January with over 30 players attending weekly.
Being more active isn’t the only benefit to these sessions – it’s a real laugh and a chance to make friends too.
Chorley FC 50+ Team
The team, who had never played together prior, managed to score a number of goals and even win a game against strong competition in the FA’s People’s Cup in Bury on a cold February afternoon. More competitive matches are planned so those that want to can represent Chorley FC walking footballers before Chorley FC play their matches, followed by watching the main event and a social get together.
More players wanted
No experience or booking necessary, just give it a try and you’ll be warmly welcomed.
