Football South Coast in partnership with the Public Relations students of the University of Wollongong (UOW), proudly present Illawarra’s first-ever Walking Football Tournament. The event will take place on May 13th, 2023 at the University of Wollongong, Sports Hub. This tournament will bring together enthusiasts of all ages and abilities from across the country for a day of competitive and friendly walking football matches.
Walking football is a modified version of football, open to women over 40’s and men over 50’s and 60’s. Players are required to walk instead of run and keep the ball below head height, creating a slow-paced and safe game. The sport is played on a smaller pitch with a smaller ball.
The Walking Football Tournament will feature multiple rounds of both social and competitive walking football matches, food and drink stalls, entertainment, and exciting prizes to be won, making it a fun day out for everyone.
Football South Coast is hosting come and try sessions on the day of the tournament from 8:45am, giving all players the opportunity to get a feel for the game.
