What is the National Walking Football program?
The national Walking Football programs are run in partnership with Active Ageing Australia and Member Federations offering a social, small-sided version of football specifically modified for older Australians, in metropolitan, regional & remote locations.
What is Walking Football?
It is low-impact, team-based exercise, utilising the defined ‘Walking Football Rules and Formats,’ specifically non-contact with the players ‘always having one foot on the ground’.
Matches are played with modified formats (5v5/6v6) on smaller pitches with shortened game times.
Walking Football aims to promote positive physical & mental health benefits, social connectedness and the benefits of ongoing physical activity.
