We are running sessions at the moment on the grass at Melbourne Park with what we call first steps, due to Covid-19 restrictions. It is run in groups of 6 as a bit of exercise and kicking a ball. As soon as we’re back in full business on the pitches we’ll let you know.
Chelmsford City Walking Football Club welcomes players of all standards both male and female, although we don’t have any female members at the moment. It’s not even a requirement to have played football before! You don’t need to be physically fit. Aside from their age, a number of our members have suffered conditions that have made them less mobile. Walking Football is aimed at the Over 50s (and all competitions are either for Over 50s, Over 60s or Over 65s). Our oldest players are in their 70s. We pride ourselves on being a friendly club and recognise that for some it’s not just about football but also about meeting new people.
We play every Tuesday and Thursday as follows:
Venue: Chelmsford Melbourne Park Astro, Salerno Way CM1 2EU. Outdoors on a 3G pitch. It is imperative that you wear either moulded or metal studded boots. The pitch owners will not allow the wearing of astroturf boots or trainers. The wearing of shin pads is also compulsory.
Time: 10am to 12pm
Cost: £5 per session (payable to the club)
Venue: Chelmsford Sport and Athletic Centre but we play indoors within the Centre. Trainers are most suitable for this surface.
Time: 11am to 1pm
Cost: £5.80 per session (payable directly to the Centre. There is a reduction to £4.80 for members of the Centre)
I attach a Membership Application link below and it would be appreciated if you could complete this and bring it with you when you attend your first session.
I also attach a copy of the Laws of the Game we use.
Obviously we are not running sessions at the moment due to Covid-19 restrictions. As soon as we’re back in business we’ll let you know.
