Walking Football at Colin Glen Leisure
Get Out, Get Active, Stay Healthy
Location: Colin Glen Leisure, Black’s Road, Belfast
Days & Times: Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12 noon Starting Monday 8th January.
Walking football is targeted at those aged 50 and above, and aims to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle without putting too much stress on the body.
It has very specific rules that outlaw all running and allows either no contact or only minimal physical contact between players. Over-head height restrictions and indirect free kicks ensure that the sport is played safely with full consideration to the participants’ age.
Teams are either 5 or 6-a-side. As a result of these rules, games are played at a slower pace, on our state of the art 3G artificial grass pitches, thus reducing the threat of pain, discomfort and injury, with players briskly walking through matches. This allows people who have loved the sport all their lives to once again safely get back to playing and also introduces the sport to people who perhaps have never considered playing before.
Football doesn’t have to stop in your 30’s
