Walking Football in Balerno

The new season of Walking Football for the over 50’s started at the beginning of September and they are looking for anyone who is interested to come along.

Walking Football is an increasingly popular activity among football enthusiasts who are either too old or physically unable to play full competitive football but still want the thrill and enjoyment of taking part and being part of a club.

Sessions take place at Balerno High School on the new 3G surface, every Friday from 4.30-5.30pm. A number of people from the local community have taken part so far including members of Currie Crocs, a keep fit class, and a number of ex-players returning to the game after a long spell out of playing football.
