Back after a two week summer break the very popular health-through-sport initiative for the over 50s, ‘Walking Football’ returns for your entertainment in early August! As usual, it’s available locally in Coventry and/or Bedworth and 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, Ken Brown, 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! So, if you are free on Thursdays you can come to one of its first bases, St. Finbarr’s Sports & Social Club (303 Holbrooks Lane, Coventry CV6 4DG) or if you prefer Monday mornings then the place for you is Bedworth Town’s ground, the Bedworth Oval.
Why not come along and join in the next sessions of ‘Walking Football’ at Bedworth Oval on Monday 3rd August or at St Finbarr’s the following Thursday (6th August) and and get fitter in time for the start of the new season?
