Have a ball at walking soccer

24 February 2021

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

Held on Tuesday 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 held on Tuesdays from 5.30-6.30pm at the Moruya basketball stadium, on Albert Street.

Participants can join in on any Tuesday. For more information – or to book - contact Eurobodalla Council’s Emily Dannock on 4474 1081 or email Emily Dannock.
