The Optima Stadium will soon play host to Ladies Walking Football, following in the footsteps of our successful Men’s Walking Football and Ladies Football teams.
These new sessions are open to women of all footballing abilities and will have an emphasis on fun and enjoyment.
The club is asking those who might like to join the sessions to fill out the below form, so interest can be gauged.
Playing Walking Football can contribute to your physical and mental health, whilst allowing you to make new friends and improve your football skills.
When asked about the plans, Sarah Adams, Weston-super-Mare AFC Ladies Manager, commented:
I’m really pleased to see Weston stepping out ahead of many others by expanding their walking football provision to include ladies.
“The health benefits from sport are obvious but also the social and psychological gains from being part of a team are massive.”
Lach Geddes, Weston-super-Mare AFC Community Director and Walking Football Manager, said:
If you are over 18 years of age and looking to try or get back into football or looking for some fun and exercise, give walking football a try.
“It is so enjoyable and keeps you fit and it becomes a very social event, after playing we all have refreshments and a good laugh and catch up”
