For those of us septuagenarians looking to continue playing Walking Football without the fear of being tackled and damaging our ageing bodies.
WF for those 70+ will follow the normal rules – three touches and no running (if only we could) – with a few exceptions: NO contact; NO tackling; and players to give opponents a minimum of two metres space.
More like a game of WF Chess where movement and passing are the main criteria.
Every Friday morning, commencing 12th November
Olhanense astro-turf pitch (courtesy of SC Olhanense)
9.30 to 11.30am. €3 per session.
Come and give it a try. Refreshments will be on Chris Wright after the first session – homemade Eccles Cakes and coffee.

I hope to be there if Over Aged Players are allowed to Play
I am a player in Hull, East Yorkshire, in our group we have over 70s and over 65’s.
One of our over 70 group has a villa near Tavira . Can he join in on Friday’s sessions and he could organise a friendly for the rest of our over 70’s.
Hi Antony. Your member is more than welcome to attend our over 70s sessions when he is in Portugal. I’ll get our liaison man to contact you regarding organising a friendly or two.
