Walking football - the slow game that's growing fast
7 July 2015
Watch and learn - and then get involved!
Millwall For All staged its first ever 'Walking Football Games Day' on Friday 3rd July.
Walking Football is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle, whatever their age, as well as getting those back playing football who may have had to stop through injury.
Described as 'a slower paced version of the beautiful game', the rules of Walking Football are similar to ordinary football, with the main difference that players are not allowed to run.
This game can be played by all ages, abilities, genders and sizes, with the focus on getting healthy and staying active.
Millwall have taken an active step to promote and raise the profile of Walking Football in our local area and former Lions' defender and skipper Dave Cusack is a keen participant
He said: "Not only is it great fun, but it's a good way to keep fit and meet new people. I'm sure I'll ache a bit afterwards, but it will also remind me that I need to get on the bike and start doing a bit more exercise again."
