Walking Football in Hastings
Watch our first post-lockdown training session!
If you are reading this then you are probably interested in having a game of walking football!
Then you are among friends! Like us, you probably stopped playing years ago and took to the couch wishing you could play again. Well, now you can. If you are more than 50 years of age, and not completely decrepit, you can join the lads at Hastings United Walking Football. We are under the Hastings United FC umbrella and are a group of senior players dedicated to fun, fitness and football.
The game is largely the same – only we walk rather than run – and the skill levels range from former internationals to Sunday pub teams. Whether you were a tough defender, a midfield engine, a gifted winger or a talented striker or keeper you’ll be welcome to join us.
This a non-contact sport so you shouldn’t fear any injury inflicted by another player and if you have some ball skills you’ll soon find out that playing footie is like riding a bike – you never forget!
The walking football section of Hastings United FC is affiliated to the Walking Football Association (WFA). We play one or twice a week – use contact form to get details. We always do a short warm-up and when possible play in tournaments with other Sussex towns. The cameraderie is good, the games are exhilarating and if you missed playing as much as we did, you’ll be hooked in no time.
All you need is a pair of suitable trainers and the confidence to make that initial approach. You can come and watch us play for a while or join in straight away and you’ll be made welcome. Fill in the contact details for more information and we will be in touch.
