COGS’ Women’s Walking Football Sessions

16th February 2020 – Link:  COGS Women’s Walking Football Sessions a Success.


Come and join us!

Women’s Walking Football is becoming increasingly popular among women aged 40+ and was a new inclusion in the FA’s national amateur 5 a-side football competition, the FA People’s Cup, this year.  It’s a slower paced version of the game and includes laws such as no tackling, no running and the ball has to stay below head height.

It’s great for women who want to learn to play, as well as those who may be coming back from injury or those who just enjoy playing a slower paced game.

Getting active at age 40+ is really important for not only mental health but physical health too and you’ll meet some brilliant women while you’re playing.  If you’ve not played before this is an ideal session for you to start!

We play on the Astro 1 pitch at Hazelwick School.

Sessions will involve a warm up, some drills and a game at the end and it will all be fun and enjoyable regardless of anyone’s ability.

The first session is FREE and the following sessions are £3 each.  We will keep them at £3 for as long as we can.

For more information, email or if you want a chat, feel free to call Carol Bates on 07837523370.

The session is now held at Hazelwick School on the Astro pitch, Crawley, RH10 1SX and is from 7-8pm on Monday evenings.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the session starts.  Ideally, you should wear trainers and comfortable clothing with layers you can remove as you may get hotter as you play.  Please also bring along shin pads, and water to keep you hydrated.  There will be female coaches and we would encourage anyone over 40 to give it a try, especially those who are not physically active.  We don’t think you’ll regret it!

All the details can be found on our Sessions Menu under Walking Football.
