Fun and friendly version of football is a walk in the park

Love the beautiful game, but looking for a calmer way to exercise? Then an exciting new activity launched in White City could be just the answer.

Aimed at over 50s living in Hammersmith & Fulham, the QPR in the Community Trust has launched new weekly ‘walking football’ sessions.

The low intensity exercise, ideal also for those returning from injury or with limited ability to run.

Walking football is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle regardless of their age, as well as helping those with injuries to easy gently back into an activity.

It is a non-contact sport, and as the name suggests, anyone that sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play will be penalised with a free-kick awarded to the other team.

These sessions are no longer running.

Please contact Samay.balal@lbhf.gov.uk for further information.
