East Algarve Walking Football (EAWF) welcomed over 60 and over 70 walking football teams from Gibraltar on Tuesday 22nd November and Thursday 24th November, 2022.
Due to the Christmas holidays etc. there will be no Friday non-contact sessions in Olhão on December 23rd or December 30th.
From small beginnings a year ago, when we had four participants, we are now attracting more players who cannot afford to take tumbles or knocks (which probably means Charlie will never be able to join us!)
The 7th Algarve Walking Football Cup took place at Browns Sports Resort in Vilamoura on October 7th and 8th 2022.
The EAWF Xmas Party will be held on December 8th at Xicken Piripiri from 7.30 pm onwards.
The non-contact session at Olhão on September 30th 2022 has been cancelled. Apologies for the short notice.
We have changed our website address to better represent our club here in the East Algarve. The new address is https://eastalgarvewf.com
From next week (September 6th and ongoing) the Tuesday session will revert back to the normal location at the pitch next to the Eduardo Mansinho Sports Hall. If you haven’t yet completed the Leoes and Camara forms can you please see Paul Johnson next week at the latest.
The football pitch in Casével has hosted five games of walking football this year, with interest growing each session. We have kept the format the same with two teams of 5-a-side and mixed ages ranging from 8 to 63. The over 50s are still shy to come forward; however, we are gaining interest with three players in this category. The referee was Mike from the Olhão East Algarve Walking Football Team.
Following the success of the previous padel tournament at Pedras da Rainha we have arranged for another fun padel day, again at Pedras da Rainha in Cabanas. This event will be slightly different and specifically for players, family and friends associated with our football club.
