Have your say

Struggling to keep up with fleet footed teenagers, or sick of waking up in agony after your latest full on football session?

Well worry no more because Walking Football is coming to Aylesbury.

The Berks and Bucks FA is targeting older adults, to encourage them to continue playing football but at walking pace. The same rules as standard football apply, with the exception that participants are not allowed to run, reducing the physical demands on players and making for a more even playing field.

An introductory session is being held on Sunday November 24 (6.30-8pm) at Meadowcroft Astro Turf, Aylesbury.

The Berks and Bucks FA will then take steps to provide regular sessions and even organise an Aylesbury league based on the level of interest.
