‘Walking Football’ is back in 2023 at the Sandgate Bowls Club on Friday nights commencing at 6pm. Walking Football is a slowed down, minimal contact version of regular football (soccer) aimed at men & women in the over 50’s age bracket.
Health experts are excited by the physical & mental benefits of the game, it is an easy and fun way to boost fitness and has the backing of Football Queensland and A-League outfit the Brisbane Roar. Walking Football is attracting people who have never played the game before and former players are encouraged to move back to this game. There is now a group of players based at Sandgate Bowls Club, who meet on Friday nights at 5:45pm for a 6pm kick off. A fee of only $5 is paid by each player each Friday and teams are picked on a random basis and four quarters of 15 minutes each are played, with a break in between each quarter.
After the game the bar of Sandgate Bowls Club is open for well-earned refreshments. For more information, contact Helena Winter on 0408 918 817 or just turn up at Sandgate Bowls Club Fridays at 5:45pm. You will be most welcome.
