The increasingly popular health through sport initiative for the over 50s, ‘Walking Football’ continues to be available in Coventry and district. Locally, each ‘Walking Football’ event is organised by Sky Blue in the Community (SBiTC) supremo, former Sky Blue defender and CCFPA member David Busst along with SBiTC’s Hiedi Sloan. The sessions which are supported by, amongst others, CCFPA, Cov Support News Service and CCFC Diamond Club take place from 10:30am until noon at a cost of £3 which includes refreshments. You can find out more by contacting Sky Blues in the Community’s Health Manager, Hiedi Sloan (telephone: 02476 786 314 Text: 07813 455 531 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org). SBiTC can also be contacted at email@example.com
The mix of Sky Blue fans, Association committee members, CCFPA Associate Members, and our full members, usually include some of our most well respected former players like Dietmar Bruck, Ian Goodwin and Dave Bennett.
The sessions are specifically designed for over 50s who wish to exercise gently and enjoyably through football in the company of friends and they try to ensure that all play is at kept at walking pace and running is penalised! You have two choices to join us in Warwickshire:- at one of its first bases, St. Finbarr’s Sports & Social Club (303 Holbrooks Lane CV6 4DG) every Thursday or at Bedworth Town’s ground, the Bedworth Oval every Monday morning.
Why not come along and join in the next sessions of ‘Walking Football’ at St Finbarr’s on Thursday (9th July) and Bedworth Oval next Monday (13th July) and keep fit during the close season?
