STFC Community Foundation (sponsors of the NWYFL U12 League Cup) have launched a new Walking Football League at their state-of-the-art sporting facility Foundation Park, and are calling for local managers and secretaries to jump on-board. Since the start date in September, the first Walking Football league in Wiltshire has seen over 8 teams taking part, which over 40 new Walking Footballers taking to the pitch.
Foundation Park Walking Football League (FPWFL) is a 6-a-side league that will give all teams 2 matches per fixture night. Aimed at players aged 50 and above, this will offer the opportunity to play the sport they love in an enjoyable and safe environment. All matches will take place on a Thursday evening from 8pm.
The league will give the players major health benefits from playing Walking Football on a weekly basis, which will also offer huge social and mental health benefits too.
If you’re an individual interested or you have a group of friends who would be interested in getting involved within the league, then please contact Community Development Officer James Sims on firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to provide you with more information on getting involved.
