What is Walking Football?
The sport is continuing to grow and develop and alongside the popular demand for recreational walking football, we’re now recognising the increased demand for a competitive element to this slower-paced version of the beautiful game. Kent FA is currently developing ways in which to support the growth of the competitive game and more information will be released on this across the course of the season.
So, whether you’re looking for a social kick about or to find your old competitive edge, in Kent we have something to suit you.
Since January 2014, Kent FA has invested over £25,000 into developing Recreational Football Session all over the county. This investment includes multiple Walking Football Sessions which are listed on the “list of sessions and centres” document.
Kent FA has provided funding to support the start-up cost of creating a Recreational Football Session to help towards the cost of facilities, equipment, staffing and whatever else is needed. Kent FA’s Development Team also provides registered sessions with invaluable advice on how to engage recreational footballs, create player exit routes and grow/develop the success of the session. This has helped to establish a healthy number of sessions in the county, helping over 1600 open aged participants (16 years +) access football in Kent.
