Walking football at Altrincham FC in the community

Walking football is different to regular Association Football in many ways, and is traditionally aimed at the over 50’s age group, or those whose mobility may be slightly compromised. However, many tournaments are now catering exclusively for the over 60’s age group.

Walking football has very specific rules that outlaw all running and allow 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.
