Walking ... football !


Over-50s want to play football too, even if they don't necessarily want to be sprinting around for ninety minutes on a large pitch.
So... that's why Walking Football has been invented.  Basically, the rules are completely the same except that running is not allowed.

Amazingly, Staffordshire seems to be one of the national hotbeds of this form of the game.  Cheadle Leisure Centre has three sessions of walking football a week.  It's pretty competitive too...
