We brought together 12 people living with at least one health condition to create the Team Undefeatable virtual football team. Many of the team members had never played before, but with the support of the team and practice over the 10 week programme their confidence and skills improved hugely. Best of all, the team bonded over their love of the game and enjoyed meeting up virtually each week.
For anyone who enjoys getting active with others, walking football could be a great fit for you. The fact that you can’t run means it is suitable for a range of conditions and ages, but most importantly the team spirit creates a sense of fun and comradery. As the National Governing Body, The Football Association, along with its network of 50 local County Football Associations (CFAs), are supporting the growth and development of Walking Football.
