If you ever played football and thought that your playing days were over, think again. Riverside FC runs a team for the over 50s in the Derbyshire Evening league. Walking Football is taking off in Derbyshire as we, the silver generation, enjoy playing and mixing with people we played against in our youth.
Riverside Walking Football Club meets every Tuesday at Wilsthorpe School Gym at 18:00. We play league matches at Springwood leisure centre about once a month and intend to enter the Derbyshire FA Walking Festivals throughout the coming months. The Festivals are very friendly occasions where competition isn’t the main consideration. Teams can be mixed, so ladies don’t think that this is a male only preserve. We are an inclusive club and welcome everyone to our Tuesday turn up and play sessions. Age isn’t an issue for these as we have some younger players who enjoy playing this version of the game. The rules are simple, no running and enjoy yourself! All you need is a pair of trainers and the love of the game to improve fitness and meet like minded people.
