Do you still want to play football, but don’t have the same stamina and pace that you once had? Then walking football is ideal for you. Even if you still play, walking football is still a challenge and might even help improve your touch, it’s also a great way of getting fit. There is no membership and no pressure, just a bunch of guys who would probably never have had the opportunity to play again. And of course, the banter. It’s the one thing that most players say that they miss the most, there’s plenty of that.
Our Wednesday sessions at the Condor are slightly more competitive, most players attending have played football at some level in their life. Selected members play in a league and enter tournaments.
In the summer months, our Wednesday sessions are held at RM Condor every Wednesday. The session starts at 1900 for an hour, but we would appreciate it if you were there for 18.40, this helps us sort out the admin and gives us the full hour for playing.
In the winter, we play indoors at RM Condor. The session time is 1900-2030, but it’s important that you are there at 1850. If you are late, you will not be able to get in. Both sessions cost £3.50 (£2.50 for pensioners and unemployed).
Our Arbroath Academy sessions are run by Arbroath FC Community Trust and cater for those who are looking to try walking football out to see if it’s for them. These sessions also cater for people overcoming injury or illness, those who can’t make the Condor sessions because the time doesn’t suit them, or just for people wanting to get fit again.
In general, walking football is aimed at the 50+ age group, however, these sessions allow for younger people to give it a go. Unfortunately, anyone under the age of 50 won’t be pushed toward joining the Condor Wednesday sessions.
Arbroath walking Football are an unincorporated association. We are a nonprofit club.
