ESFA and Maroubra United recently hosted the second week of our Walking Football ‘Come & Try Session’ on Saturday 14th of May at Coral Sea Park.
Sixteen participants joined in on all the action in a bid to be part of what is an ever growing part of the sport.
Our General Manager Bill Kostandas paid a glowing tribute to Maroubra United’s Frank Friedmann who was the brains behind getting Walking Football on the map in the area.
“On behalf of ESFA I am thrilled that Walking Football has kicked off. In its second week at Coral Sea Park, Frank Friedmann from Maroubra United Football Club has done a lot of great work in getting Walking Football up and running in the Eastern Suburbs. Due to Frank’s passion and drive for Walking Football I am sure the sport will grow very quickly as word gets out what a great sport Walking Football is.
“Walking Football is a great sport for all ages. The benefits of Walking Football in terms of physical and mental health are so good. It is a great way for people of all ages to either have an introduction to Football or be reengaged to the sport in a fun and controlled environment.
“Walking Football is for all – doesn’t matter what age you are everyone is welcome.”
Walking football has become increasingly popular over the last few years – and for good reason. Aimed at adults over 50, although we are welcoming keen players of all ages, walking football has many social, mental and physical health benefits.
