Women's Walking Football launched for people over the age of 55 in Milton Keynes

A newly launched social activity, called Women's Walking Football, has launched in Milton Keynes for those over 55-years-old.

The sessions have been created by the MK Dons SET, in partnership with Age UK Milton Keynes, to provide a fun and engaging way for older women to get outside and meet new people.

Women's Walking Football, which takes place in Central Milton Keynes on a weekly basis, is open to all women - even if they have no football experience or little fitness ability. 

A spokesperson for the MK Dons SET explained: "Walking Football is a variation of the conventional game where running is not allowed!

"The sessions will include an introduction to walking football with some light activities and fun games facilitated by a MK Dons SET coach and aided by a volunteer."

Women's Walking Football will take place every Monday at Sport Central from 12:30pm to 1:30pm and it costs £3.50 per session.
