CCFPA, CCFC’s Diamond Club and Cov Support News Service all support the now, well established, weekly ‘Walking Football’ sessions in both Coventry (St Finbarr’s Sports & Social Club) and Bedworth (at Bedworth Town’s Oval ground) and many of their members participate, playing, watching or supporting the events. ‘Walking Football’ encourages fitness, football and fun for the over 50s. Despite the chilly weather attendances continue to grow and around forty seniors gather each week at each event to undertake relatively gentle and restrained but competitive exercise through soccer.
However, all regular patrons (and any ‘newbies’ planning to attend a session this coming week) should note that next week everyone is taking a half-term break. This will allow participants and some of the supporting staff organised by Heidi Sloan of Sky Blues in the Community a well earned week off.
Rest assured ‘Walking Football’ will resume after the break in Bedworth on Tuesday 28th February (and subsequent Tuesdays) and in Coventry on their two sessions on Monday 27th February and Thursday 2nd March (and subsequent Mondays and Thursdays) all kicking off at 10.30am. They cost £3 (including hot and cold refreshments) and often taking part are CCFPA full members including the likes of SBiTC supremo Dave Busst, Bill Tedds, Dietmar Bruck, Ken Brown, Ian Goodwin, Dave Bennett, committee members Dean Nelson, Sarah-Jane Morris and Frank Pritchard and a number of Associate Members. If ‘Walking Football’ is good enough for CCFPA members it must be good enough for all Sky Blue fans!
