Walking Football Glossop – Join Our Fun & Friendly Sessions
Walking Football Glossop, although based in Tameside, have many members from the Glossop area who play in either our fun or competitive sessions or even both.
If you live in the Glossop or High Peak area and of course Tameside, then with Walking Football Glossop you are assured of a friendly welcome no matter what your level of ability is. We have players in their 60’s, 70’s and even 80’s who still love to play the beautiful game. Your fitness and well being will improve as you attend more walking football sessions.Many experienced ex players, or even those that have had limited involvement of playing football in their youth, are sceptical about walking football. It doesn’t take long to dispel these ideas, with many saying it’s the best thing that has happened to them in years.
A lot of older men feel isolated and have a limited social life. With Walking Football Glossop you will soon develop new friendships and even gain a younger outlook on life. It’s a misconception that football is only for youngsters.
The growth of walking football has proved that, with the number of venues hosting this relatively new sport rising rapidly. From 88 in November 2014 to 551 at present, most of these venues have walking football clubs that engage in tournaments, leagues and friendly matches.
Our own competitive team, Vintage Celtic have been one of the leaders in standardising the rules for walking football in the Cheshire county, in association with the Cheshire FA. Vintage Celtic are currently competing in the new Cheshire Walking Football League and also the Etihad League.
If you want to join, or even just try out our sessions, look at the training venues on this website. The Saturday venue is for those who play competitively and is quite fast paced. The Monday venue, although competitive, is a more relaxed session with both the fun and competitive element. A new, even more softer session for those that just want to play for fun and meet new people will shortly be commencing, day/venue and time to be confirmed.
Remember, you are never too old to enjoy one of the 3 forms of walking football that Walking Football Glossop can offer.
