The small sided version of the beautiful game has grown in popularity in Sussex over the last few years with sessions all across the county. The game is non-contact and is played at a slower pace to reduce the risk of injury. The emphasis is on intelligent positioning and ball control rather than physical attributes. There are plenty of variations of the game using different numbers of players and restrictions on the amount of touches, however due to the increased popularity, The FA have created a Walking Football Laws of the Game which are attached at the bottom of this page.
If you are keen to join a session, use the map/list below to find your local one. With 26 sessions in Sussex, there is a good chance you will not have to travel far to find your local Walking Football Club. If you have a group who are keen to start a new session, then contact Development@SussexFA.com and we can support you with this.
It can be mixed sex football, if there is demand, as it is unaffiliated (not formal, ‘league’ football) but Sussex County FA encourages centres / facilitators to provide female only sessions where required.
Play the game you love but reduce the chances of injury. It's a great way to keep fit, learn skills, have fun and socialise all at the same time!
