Southport Walk Back to Sport

Sefton Council is launching two brand new sessions aimed at getting those over 50 playing the sports they love again.

Launching at Dunes Splash World on Thursday, April 28, Walking Football and Walking Netball are, in a nutshell, slower versions of the beautiful games everyone knows and loves.

The rules are the same but all players walk, meaning it is even easier on the muscles and knees.

The sessions, which are aimed at making sport more accessible to all, are followed by a post-game tea or coffee, meaning attendees can meet new friends as they start their new healthier, more active lifestyle.

So if you fancy dusting off your trainers, donning an old school bib and getting back into the game you loved, this could be the session for you!

Walking Netball will take place on Thursdays 11am-12pm and Walking Football will take place Fridays 11am-12pm, both sessions are £2 per session, post match refreshment included.

The FREE launch event takes place at Dunes Splash World on Thursday, April 28 from 11am. Fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support will also be taking place on the day.
