Starting on Wednesday 4th May
We are delighted to announce we have secured funding to deliver a brand new Walking Football programme at venues across Glasgow.
Building on both the work of the existing On The Ball teams and our Active Age/Seniors programme, On The Ball Walking Football programme will commence in April and ensure more individuals can access the benefits of the beautiful game for longer.
The health benefits of Walking Football are now well established. Studies in the UK and Denmark have revealed how Walking Football is helping many men win battles against depression, mental illness and anxiety, especially around retirement age. Indeed, research by Ashton University into older males exposed to lifelong football found they had high levels of ‘flow’ while playing football – a state of psychological reward and satisfaction.
Our first session will take place on Wednesday the 4th of May at 6pm at Glasgow Green Regional Football Centre (Pitch D). It is free of charge, we only ask that you register your interest via the form below.
