The slower version of the beautiful game hel at Pitreavie Sports and Soccer Centre.

Walking football is a variant of association football that is aimed at keeping people aged 50+ involved with football if, due to a lack of mobility or for other reason, they are not able to play the traditional game. The sport can be played both indoors and outdoors.

Come and join Pars Foundation at Pitreavie Sport & Soccer Centre every Tuesday 12pm-1pm FREE for first 5 weeks (£5 per week thereafter) sessions start Tuesday 31st August

Though based on association football, the key difference in the rules, from standard football, is that if a player runs then they concede a free kick to the other side. This restriction, together with a ban on slide tackles, is aimed both at avoiding injuries and facilitating the playing of the sport by those who are physically disadvantaged. In walking football the game was originally played without goalkeepers (though goalkeepers now play in some variations) and, crucially, the ball must never be kicked above head height (some teams play goal).
