Walking Football, the popular new health initiative designed for the over 50s is quickly expanding across the country and CCFPA is encouraging you to take part. If you live in the Coventry area you have two choices to join in:- either at one of its first bases at St. Finbarr’s Sports & Social Club (303 Holbrooks Lane CV6 4DG) every Thursday or at Bedworth Town’s ground, the Bedworth Oval on Monday mornings.
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 the Sky Blues in the Community Team by Email: firstname.lastname@example.org , or Telephone: 02476 786 314, or Text: 07813 455 531.
If you’re over 50 years old and would like to get involved you can’t do better than join us in these popular sessions (see our reports on the fun to be had at previous sessions in earlier news items)! New participants join every week and early this month a record 35 players attended St Finbarr’s enabling the organisers to field five teams in a round robin tournament for the first time! According to CFPA committee member Frank Pritchard the games were very competitive and showed commitment from the whole group including the several ‘first-timers’ that tried it out and found it much to their liking!
