The HFA, in partnership with the Defence Medical Welfare Service, Herefordshire MIND and the Hereford Men’s Mental Health Group, and with support from the Armed Forces Covenant Trust and Hereford City Council, has launched weekly walking football sessions on its 3G pitch off of Widemarsh Common in Hereford.
Walking football is an exciting new format of the game, designed for those unable to participate in regular football for whatever reason. With players regularly reaching 10,000 steps, the sport is excellent for anyone with a passion for football that wants the benefits of regular exercise and to satisfy their football urge, without the risk of injury.
Accessible to anyone over the age of 16, no matter what the level of previous experience, feedback suggests that, once you’ve tried walking football, you’ll be hooked.
Sessions for those connected to the armed forces community run from 5pm – 6pm every Wednesday, with free food and drinks afterwards. The men’s mental health sessions run every other Monday, also from 5pm – 6pm and with free food and drink after.
