Walking Football

The walking football club is part of Hills Farm Lane FC and was started on 7th July 2015. For the first four and a half months of this season we played every Tuesday morning at Renches Lane, Shipley where the most amazing facilities have been created and will continue to be developed. From 17th November and continuing until the end of March 2016, we are playing on a 3G artificial surface at the Holbrook Club, Horsham.

Sessions are from 9am to 11am on Tuesdays. At present we are playing 5,6 or 7 a-side amongst ourselves but have ventured into one competitive tournament. Friendlies against other Sussex teams and expect to be able to host our tournament when the pitch conditions at Shipley have improved.

The ground at Shipley has a separate pitch exclusively for the use of the walking football team. It is planned to further develop the facilities there including the building of a new club house.

We believe that walking football is a natural progression for those who are 'too old' for the veterans' game but stiil being part of a football team and getting the buzz of competitive sport at ages from 55 with no upper limit!

For information on planned training sessions, matches and other walking football events, please see our Diary Dates page.
