Clitheroe Wolves Walking Football Team

Clitheroe Wolves Walking Football Club is an affiliated club of Clitheroe Wolves FC. We boast a membership of approximately 40 players spanning the ages of 37 to 70 and beyond.

Our younger participants, side-lined by serious injuries, retain their passion for the game and find a fulfilling outlet in our club. However, the majority of our members are aged 50 and above.

We convene twice weekly, on Wednesday evenings with a sociable gathering thereafter, and on Sunday mornings. Each session adheres to walking football regulations and incurs a fee of £5.

Annually, we proudly represent our club at the Walking Football Club event in Portugal, while also seeking involvement in local FA events and leagues.

Anatomy of walking

Benefits of Walking Football

Walking football offers a range of benefits, both physical and social:

Despite the lower intensity compared to regular football, walking football still provides cardiovascular benefits, helping to improve heart health and reduce the risk of conditions like heart disease and stroke.

Regular participation can improve mobility, balance, and overall fitness levels. It’s an excellent way to stay active and maintain joint flexibility without placing excessive strain on the body.

Engaging in physical activity, even at a walking pace, can assist in weight management by burning calories and maintaining a healthy metabolism.

Walking football fosters a sense of community and camaraderie among participants. It provides opportunities for social interaction, friendship, and a support network, which can be particularly beneficial for older adults.

Physical activity has been linked to improved mental health and wellbeing. Walking football offers a fun and engaging way to reduce stress, boost mood, and combat feelings of isolation or loneliness.

Participants can still enjoy the technical aspects of football, such as passing, dribbling, and shooting, while honing their skills in a low-impact environment.

Walking football is inclusive and accessible to people of all ages and fitness levels. It allows individuals with mobility issues or past injuries to participate in a sport they love without fear of exacerbating existing conditions.

Whether it’s scoring a goal, making a successful pass, or simply completing a session, walking football provides a sense of achievement and satisfaction, boosting self-esteem and confidence.

Overall, walking football offers a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, combining physical activity with social engagement and enjoyment of the game. Find out more at thewfa.co.uk
