Time to Shine funded ‘Your Back Yard’ in September 2019 to run weekly walking football sessions for a year, in partnership with Bramley Elderly Action.

We’re happy to say that a year later we and we are still up and running (or you might say walking!). Despite having to pause our sessions throughout the Covid-19 lockdown, we will be playing again in the new year.

Throughout the year we have established a team, the ‘Bramley Walking Wanderers’ and are looking for a sponsor to provide the team with a matching kit. Despite having an established team, we still encourage anyone who wants to give it a go to come along, details below:

When: Fridays, 10am

Location: Bramley Park

Cost: Completely free!

What is walking football? Walking football is an adapted version of football, designed to be inclusive and accessible to people aged over 50, whilst still being just as fun as the beautiful game! There is no running allowed, and some other rules prevent the ball from going too high, and anyone from getting injured.

Who can get involved? Anyone aged over 50 living in the Bramley area. You don’t have to be a member of Bramley Elderly Action, and the sessions are open to all genders and physical abilities. If you have concerns about whether or not you will be physically able to take part, please get in contact with Your Back Yard using the details below, so that we can send you a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire.

How can I get involved? If you’re interested in coming along, please either contact Bramley Elderly Action, or Your Back Yard.
