Walking Football Tournament
11th April 2016
We are hosting our first ever over 50’s, 5 a side Walking Football Tournament on Sunday 24th April 2016, working in partnership with Boston United. Local teams from around the county as well as those from surrounding areas are invited to take part in Boston’s first ever Walking Football Tournament.
Walking football for over 50’s has lots of benefits – it’s important to stay fit, active and healthy whatever your age but as you get older, regular exercise and playing a sport like walking football can help. It can improve strength, increase core stability, help you lose or maintain your weight and muscles, and improve balance. It is also a great way for people to meet others and great way to socialise.
“Since launching our Walking Football sessions last summer as part of our Sport England Active Pilgrims project, it has fast become one of our most popular sessions, with up to 28 people turning up to take part. We hope the tournament will be a good opportunity to showcase walking football and provide players with the opportunity to socialise, as well as play at the Boston United stadium, “ says Holly Maidens, Tournament Co-coordinator.
Team entry for the Walking Football Tournament is £25 per team, with hot and cold refreshments available throughout the day.
