  3. Peter Wynne, a convicted sex offender has been jailed for up to 4 months for playing a game of over 50's Walking Football at Dimensions Leisure Centre in Burslem, Stoke On Trent, Staffs, United Kingdom. The 53 year old man is subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SOPO) imposed in 2004 which prevents him going to places where minors could be present. Spotted at the leisure centre by a Police officer, further investigations found he attended the centre on Tuesday nights to play walking football. Judge David Fletcher, who passed out his jail term, has now suggested the SOPO should be reviewed and added, “This SOPO was made many years ago and perhaps it is the time for there to be some form of review." However he went on to add, “You should have realised the leisure centre is used by a myriad of young children for all sorts of activities. It is inevitable if you were going in public areas there would have been some contact with children."
  4. Hemel Town have received funding from The National League Trust and the Dacorum Age UK charity for their Happy Feet Walking Football sessions. Hemel Town will run the sessions for over 50's based in Hemel Hempstead and the wider borough of Dacorum. The Premier League and the PFA have committed to support the The National League Trust until 2019 with each donating £1.2 million over this period. This funding will help National League member clubs develop their community programmes. Date of the Happy Feet Walking Football sessions have still yet to be confirmed however if you are interested you can find out more by contacting Hemel Town’s club secretary Dean Chance on 01442 251 521 or email [email protected]

  6. stay healthy

    To me this is the most important part of the session, if you are not prepared physically and mentally you run the risk of straining, pulling or damaging muscles ligaments etc. I have seen players who go straight on to the pitch and start blasting the ball about risking injury to not only themselves but others doing their own warm ups or setting the pitch up. I have heard all the excuses, no time, it's only walking football or I only play in goal. I have seen session leads come out onto the pitch and start doing static exercises with cold muscles. Even walking across the pitch will help to warm them up. You must start with dynamic stretches, walking , jogging. side stepping, lunges and opening/closing the gate are all good ways to warm up, Then do your static stretches. Try to make time at the end of the session to cool down. I realise a lot of us use facilities that we hire by the hour. Instead of standing waiting for the area to be clear find somewhere nearby even a corridor can be used to start your warm up. The warm up doesn't need by the same every week introduce drills using balls etc variety is the spice of life, How do you warm up? Share your warm up sessions or specific drills exercises that you find useful. I am sure someone will be grateful for your post, We all need to learn.

  26. Football players who think their playing days are well behind them should think again! Walking football is a non-contact activity where any player who sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play concedes a free-kick to the other team. It’s designed to help players maintain an active lifestyle and encourages those who may have had to stop taking part in sports, to become active again by playing football. Sessions are aimed at people aged over 50 or for people with restricting health conditions, but all are welcome – check out the video to get an idea!
