What is Walking Football?

Walking Football is a small-sided, low-impact, modified version of the game, suitable for all levels of ability and fitness, from people who are returning to sport after a break or those who’ve never played before. 

  • 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’.
  • The program focuses on passing rather than speed/running. Matches are played with modified formats (5v5/6v6) on smaller pitches with shortened game times
  • Delivered through the Hub format, the Walking Football Program ensures the environment is inclusive, fun, engaging for both new and returning players.

Walking Football aims to provide participants physical & mental health benefits, social connectedness and promotion of the benefits of ongoing physical activity.
