Mixed Walking Football
The Mixed Walking Football group plays at Dodworth Miners Welfare & Social Club on the 1st,3rd and 5th Fridays of the month. KO time is 10 am and we play two halves of 20 minutes each then have a chat and a coffee/tea in the bar afterwards. It is £3 for the pitch and £1 for the drink.
Walking football is like 5 a side football except we walk (quickly) instead of running, and we try to avoid injuries, so the rules on tackles etc are different and we wear trainers rather than football boots. Nevertheless accidents do happen, such as tripping over the football, as with all U3A activities we participate at our own risk and there is no personal accident insurance provided.
It is also expected that every U3A member will conduct themselves in a manner which has regard not only to the safety of themselves but also of all other U3A members with whom they have contact. If you have any concerns about playing, please do come along and watch a Mixed Walking Football match to help you make your mind up.
Occasionally weather conditions are such that we decide to cancel the game. If possible we make a decision by 9pm on the previous night; so if the weather forecast is poor, please check your email just after 9pm.
All members, both men and women are invited to attend this group, which met for the fist time in April 2018. The group includes some members from separate Walking Galacticos Walking Football Group and the Coordinator is Nicola Foote , telephone 07872 616841.
