Register now: Have a ball at walking soccer

If you crave the action of team sport but the physicality is a bit too much, you’ll have a ball at walking soccer.

Expected to be held on Wednesday evenings in Moruya, walking soccer is a lower-impact, modified version of the game suitable for all levels of ability and fitness.

Eurobodalla Council’s community development coordinator Zoe Morgan said walking soccer was an adaptation of futsal and the perfect solution for those returning to sport after a break or who had never played before.

She said all participants needed was some enthusiasm and comfortable footwear.

“Anyone can do it - and it’s hilarious, especially when people get competitive,” she said.

“It’s a great no-contact exercise activity for those of us who might find mainstream soccer a bit too challenging, as well as for older folk, people with disability, and anybody who finds the idea of running for an extended period of time just a bit too much.

“Once you get into the swing of it it’s very engaging.”

Walking soccer is free, and is scheduled to be held on Wednesdays from 5.30-6.30pm at the Moruya basketball stadium, on Albert Street.

Once the required numbers are found for Walking Soccer to progress participants will be able to join in on any Wednesday. If you are interested in registering your interest, as an individual or team or need more information contact Eurobodalla Council’s Emily Dannock on 4474 1081 or email
