Walk this way - for a game of football
Sessions of Walking Football, an adapted but equally fun form of the beautiful game take place weekly in Chobham.
The new Friday lunchtime club is promoted, in conjunction with the Surrey FA, by Surrey Heath Borough Council and the Chobham Recreation Ground Charitable Trust, which owns Chobham’s all-weather-surface football pitch.
Sessions are Fridays, at 1pm, costing just £2 for the hour-long session.
Aimed particularly at the over-50s, this sport has seen an explosion in popularity, encouraging people, who may have thought their football-playing days were over, back into the game.
Designed to promote cardiovascular fitness whilst producing the least stress on the body, it is a great way to keep fit, even for those who have been told to ‘slow down’.
