Lanzarote’s Walking Football community will now be staging a regular game every Thursday at Aqua&Sport in Costa Teguise from 6.30pm to 8.30pm throughout June and July.
Walking Football is a new and fast-growing version of the world’s most popular sport – and it is now established on Lanzarote.
Walking Football is primarily aimed at the over 50’s and is designed to allow senior players to enjoy the beautiful game again – without any contact or running, so reducing the risk of injury.
Walking Football provides both physical and mental health benefits and provides an ideal environment for social interaction with other football lovers.
The rules are much like the regular game but with some key differences. Most notably no running – one foot must always be on the ground. And no physical contact – so tackling is not allowed either.
The Walking Football Lanzarote community is 100% inclusive and welcomes players of all fitness and ability levels across all nationalities. The group is open to female players aged 40 years plus as well as males aged 50 years plus.
The community already comprises over 40 registered players ranging in age from 52yrs up to 74 yrs.
We are always looking for new members to join the group. So why not give Walking Football a try? This new version of the game was invented in England in 2011 and is growing rapidly in popularity around the world.
