Walking Football vs Ipswich.jpg

CUFITC hold weekly walking football sessions at JobServe Community Stadium

Here at Colchester United Football in the Community we run sessions every Thursday between 5-6pm at the JobServe Community Stadium, on the astro pitches at the back of the car park. The sessions are fully inclusive and open to anyone over the age of 50.

Walking Football is a slower version of the beautiful game that allows people to play football for longer. It is a great way to get outside and exercise, making friends along the way. With no running, jogging or heading and physical contact kept to a minimum, it is a fun and safe way for players to stay or get back into football. Please see below some of health and social benefits of walking football:

  • Reduced risk of developing cardiovascular disease and strokes.
  • Help people to lose weight.
  • Improving your blood pressure.
  • Reduced risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
  • Make new friends and form lasting relationships.

Venue – JobServe Community Stadium, United Way, Colchester, Essex, CO4 5UP.

Day & time – Thursday’s 5pm-6pm.

What to wear – Comfortable sportswear, AstroTurf trainers or moulded football boots and shin pads.
