Wycombe Wanderers Foundation have a thriving Walking Football programme that consists of three weekly sessions.
The all-inclusive sessions seek to give people (usually aged 50+) who are no longer willing or able to play football at a faster pace the opportunity to still participate, and are all based around fun, enjoyment, socialising and staying active and healthy.
At present our Walking Football sessions run at the following times and places:
Tuesday Amersham & Wycombe College, Spring Lane, Flackwell Heath, HP10 9HE 7pm – 8pm Cost: £5 per session Click to book
Tuesday Age UK Female Only
Amersham & Wycombe College, Spring Lane, Flackwell Heath, HP10 9HE 7pm – 8pm Cost: £4 per session

All sessions cost £5.00 (unless stated otherwise) and must be booked in advance by emailing Wycombe Wanderers Foundation Delivery Officer (Health & Inclusion) Harry Challis on firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the office on 01494 455736.
WWSET and Age UK Buckinghamshire have partnered up to create a Walking Football project for those aged 50+ with a long term health condition.
These sessions will be all-inclusive and will seek to improve physical health in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
The sessions will run for 2 hours on a Thursday, from 10.00 am-12.00 pm, and will be made up of one hour dedicated to walking football, and one hour dedicated to socialising with your fellow teammates.
The venue for the walking football sessions is:
Lane End Playing Fields, The Row, Lane End, High Wycombe, HP14 3JR.
The first two sessions (3rd June and 10th June) are free but MUST be booked.
