WALKING FOOTBALL is up and running – well, up and strolling at least! Sonning Common Health Centre has formed a working partnership with Rotherfield United FC to establish a WF team. After several “pilot” events, a dozen enthusiastic players have now joined the team. WF is fast becoming a popular version of the “beautiful game”. More and more people who love football but have been unable to play for whatever reason, discover the health benefits and the opportunity to meet new friends. The rules are the same as conventional football but no running, jogging or tackling is allowed. We all know exercise is great for health and for many people WF may be “just the ticket”. Regardless of age, fitness or ability WF is good for your heart, brain and musculoskeletal system and it’s a fun way to get active.
The evening session has now switched to Tuesdays at 16.45 on the floodlit, artificial pitch at Highdown School, Emmer Green. The morning session has moved to Thursdays at 09.45 at Bishopswood Sports Ground
