Milngavie Football Club – Walk Football

A slower version of the beautiful game!

Everyone can feel the health benefits of Walking Football

As we get older, many of us struggle with our balance, strength, stamina, weight and worst of all confidence and self-esteem levels but Walking Football has the potential to make a significant impact in all these areas.
Building body strength, improving muscles, core stability and hopefully losing some of the weight usually gained during the ageing process. As well as being able to increase fitness levels, emotional health gets a great boost too for a person involved in Walking Football, not least self-confidence and self-esteem.
It’s the perfect game for people in later life.
Walking football is an excellent way of staying fit and healthy. Studies have shown it can be effective in the treatment of mild to moderate hypertension. Walking football offers a multitude of health benefits to older people such as reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke while improving blood pressure. It can produce high aerobic activity with marked improvements in fat oxidation and aerobic power.
There are also substantial mental health benefits.

Mental health benefits of Walking Football

There are also many psychological and mental health advantages to playing Walking Football – namely high levels of personal reward and satisfaction with reduced levels of stress and exertion while playing, despite working physically hard.

Social benefits of Walking Football

Walking football also gives an often-isolated section of the community the chance to become involved in something they really enjoy, make new friends, form lasting relationships with like-minded people and generally improve their social circle and overall quality of life, often making them feel less isolated and more a part of the wider community.

Walking football is about getting involved

There are also significant benefits for any older people involved in a Walking Football environment or club who perhaps don’t always want to play but can engage in other aspects of the sport or club such as administrative roles.

A real sense of purpose and belonging

Team manager, organising fixtures etc or sitting on a management committee of the club or even just being involved in a social capacity for the good company and friendship. All these things can help to keep older people mentally active and give their lives a very real sense of purpose and belonging, the value of which cannot be overstated.
