Easingwold Wanderers Walking Football ...

Saturday 16th September, 2023

Have you heard about walking football? Did you realize there are now over 1,200 clubs in the UK with over 40 thousand regular players, and Easingwold Wanderers is one of those clubs!

The main aim of the group has the health and wellbeing of the over fifties. The Easingwold Wanderers help people to become more active and socialise using football as the catalyst.

As the name suggests, the players walk, and there is no physical contact allowed. Though slower paced, it still makes for some fun and competitive games.

The first ‘kick off’ for the Easingwold Wanderers was just over eight years ago. The original group of only five players started our mini-kickabouts at the Galtres Centre.

The group has grown from its original five members to over thirty-six mixed ability players, all aged from fifty up to seventy-five years young.

To learn more about the group, go along to your nearest stockist and buy a copy of the Easingwold Advertiser.
