Multiple dates from Monday, September 3rd to Monday, November 5th

Event Summary

The game, aimed at over 55's, is ideal for those who would like a gentle reintroduction to physical activity or who need to improve their baseline fitness. It's run by Exeter City Community Trust, Exeters leading health and well being charity.

City Community Trust's successful programme, covers most parts of Devon.

"Walking football is becoming increasingly popular – players from some of our sessions have even participated in national tournaments already,” said Pete Ferlie, Exeter City’s Health and Wellbeing Officer.“Of course, our sessions are open to anyone regardless of footballing ability, gender, shape or size – we are getting many referrals from local GPs who recognise this is a good option for some of their patients who need the health benefits of gentle activity. Players can just come along and try the sport and have great fun while getting some pain-free exercise."
