Woodley Pensioners FC is a dedicated FA-affiliated and FA-accredited walking football club operating in the Wokingham and district area, working closely with Wokingham Borough Council Sports and Leisure Team.
We are an all inclusive club welcoming men and women of all standards, from those who just want a friendly kick around to those who would like to play at a more competitive level. No previous experience of football is necessary.
Walking football is a slow paced version of the beautiful game and is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle as well as getting those who used to play the game back on the pitch.
Focus is very much on promoting the mental health and the physical well being of all our members both on the football pitch and socially.
We run three friendly club sessions as follows:
Monday 11:00 to 12:00 outdoors on the 3G pitch at Cantley Park, Twyford Road, Wokingham RG40 5QG
Wednesday 20:00 to 21:00 outdoors on the 3G pitch at Farley Hill Primary School, Baston Road, Arborfield Green, Reading RG2 9ZW
Friday 11:00 to 12:00 outdoors on the 3G pitch at Cantley Park, Twyford Road, Wokingham RG40 5QG
Monday and Friday sessions cost £4 on an attendance basis and the Wednesday session costs £5 on an attendance basis. New members are offered three free taster sessions.
Membership is open to all who are interested in playing walking football at a cost of £5 per year, payable after the free taster sessions. This provides adequate Public Liability and Personal Accident cover to members, and to allow the purchase of small items such as balls and bibs.
Walking football should not be confused with the regular 11v11 or 5/6-a-side versions of the game. An overview of how the game is played can be found here.
Woodley Pensioners FC has a strong social side, encouraging members to interact through activities such as coffee mornings/afternoons, lunches in local hostelries and participation in charity tournaments.
Woodley Pensioners FC also operates a competitive wing which competes in the Thames Valley Walking Football League on a monthly basis and is open to those over 40 for females and over 50 for males.
Payment is preferred via online banking but the club can accommodate cash payment. The club also operates a hardship fund for genuine need.
If you are interested, please contact the club secretary.
