ABOUT WALKING FOOTBALL NELSON...
Started in 2019, Walking Football Nelson is targeted at the over 50's men and over 40's women. The sport is aimed at keeping people involved with the sport if, due to a lack of mobility or injury (or other reasons), they are no longer able to play the traditional game. And with a wide range of fitness and skill levels among our participants, it is fun, social and a great opportunity to reap the mental and physical health benefits of being involved in active sport again.
Walking Football Nelson is also as much about the social aspect and 'the after match' as it is about the sport. This is a great way to keep active while also keeping social. It's a great way to meet new people from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds, and to form great camaraderie every week. Not to mention the banter and social aspect during and after each session. We are completely about having fun!
Walking Football Nelson welcomes all new and existing members. If you're interesting in coming along or finding out more, please email email@example.com.
Currently our sessions are held the Nelson Girls College Gym on Wednesday nights from 6.15pm during the school terms. Entry is via Bronte Street, off Trafalgar Street.
