We have a well-established and thriving Walking Football scene here at AFC Rushden & Diamonds and we invite you to join.
Potential players must be aged over 50 or over however, in exceptional circumstances, we will consider individuals who may be slightly younger.
Our sessions run on a Monday evening between 7:30 pm and 9:00 pm at the Ferrers School in Higham Ferrers (on the 3G pitch) The sessions cost just £4.00; there is no need to book or email. If you are aged 50+ you can just turn up on the night and join in. Alan and Jamie will be on hand to offer you a warm welcome.
The rules are simple – It’s minimal contact football with no running!
We think that it will appeal to those looking to keep active, whether they have any previous experience of playing football or not. You will need to wear appropriate clothing for the weather, a pair of trainers and if you want to be that little safer, a pair of shin pads. It is important that you stay properly hydrated so bring along a drink and you’re good to go.
We see this as very much a social activity, players are welcome to come along every week or just now and again, whatever suits them.
