Walking Football

Mon, February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

£1.00

SVI Men’s Group meet at Portway Lifestyle Centre on the fourth Monday of every month where they take part in VI walking football.

In walking football everyone is blindfolded, including those with sight loss. We play the game at a slower pace! Instead of running you just walk. We have a sighted person there and play with a ball which makes a noise when it is in motion. The sighted person claps to indicate where the ball is when it stops. If you need to know where you are on the pitch, the sighted person will tell you. They tap both sides of the goal post to indicate where the goals are.

It’s a gentle form of exercise where you are guaranteed to have a laugh!

There is £1 charge per session to cover refreshments.
