About the Event
Walking football is perfect for people with Parkinson’s as it is low contact, with no running but plenty of movement and cardio exercise. These are our new daytime sessions held on the new 3G (astroturf) football pitch at Everyone Active's Woodside Leisure Centre in Gaston, Watford.
All our football events are designed to be fun and supportive. They typically comprise a short warm up and stretching exercises & small group matches, all at your own pace. Suitable for any ages or abilities, regardless of previous experience, for both men & women.
For safeguarding reasons, new players must pre-register for their first event before they can play, please ensure you click the register button and submit the online registration form prior to attending.
