Woodley Pensioners FC out and about
Disability Walking Football
Woodley Pensioners Walking Football Club in conjunction with Optalis is hosting sessions of disability walking football. A trial period ran for 6 weeks in May/June 2022 at Cantley Park and proved to be a resounding success with all participants having great fun!
These sessions have now become a regular weekly event on Thursdays from 11am to noon.
Candice (Optalis - Assistant Community Lives Development Manager) wrote "..thank you and your team mates for today. The feedback from the customers was excellent. They all really enjoyed it and the staff had a great time too!"
WBSC Sports Award
Woodley Pensioners Walking Football won the Male Team Award in the Wokingham Borough Sports Council Annual Sports Awards 2021.
During the pandemic (lockdown restrictions permitting) the club were at the forefront of keeping members in touch during a very difficult period.
Our ongoing commitment to promote an active lifestyle for all ages, and allowing members of the community to become involved with something that they enjoy whilst improving their social circle and quality of life, were also significant factors in securing this award.
