Walking Football


You used to enjoy playing but feel you’re too old! You’d like to be more active but don’t fancy gyms? You want to play but don’t know any else who plays? You’d like to make friends through football?

Every Tuesday at 12.30pm and Friday at 2pm, Blue Flames is hosting a new initiative for the more mature members of society that still wish to keep fit and healthy. It is called Walking Football, a 5 a side activity where the skill is in not running. It is very active and competitive but perhaps not as fast and furious as normal 5 a side. Everyone is welcome but it is targeted at those over 50 who like football but haven’t played for some years.

For just £4, why not come down and meet up with other like-minded people? This is an exercise in sociability as well as keeping fit and healthy. Already we have had many individuals turning up on their own and meeting like-minded people.

No need to book – just grab your trainers and turn up!

Blue Flames is a not-for-profit sportsground, on Whitley Rd. near Benton Metro and next door to NUFC training ground.


Tuesdays: 12.30pm to 2pm

Fridays: 2pm to 3pm
