Launching walking football at Perdiswell Leisure Centre has proved to be a tactical masterstroke, with the 100th session in two years having just taken place.
On Tuesday 29th October Active Communities Worcester delivered their 100th Walking Football session at Perdiswell Leisure Centre. The group celebrated the occasion by playing an intra-group tournament, before enjoying coffee and a selection of cakes afterwards. Over the past couple of years, the Walking Football members have formed some strong friendships which means the session has led to not only physical benefits for the participants, but social too.
Walking football attendee, Keith Lewis said: “Walking football is a fantastic sport. I haven’t played football since my early 20s, but after having a heart attack whilst playing squash, I had to find a sport that was enjoyable and safe for me to play.
"I attended the very first walking football session at Perdiswell Leisure Centre in 2017 and have loved it ever since. The group have become good friends and as a result I have only missed four of the 100 sessions so far.”
To try walking football, pop along to Perdiswell Leisure Centre on a Tuesday to try a session for free. For more information call 07885 407474 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
