Guernsey will host several international walking football games on Footes Lane this Sunday, August 22nd.

The games take place between 1:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. and feature different age groups, including a game between a men’s and a women’s team.

Walking football is growing in popularity as it is accessible to people of all ages.

Players are not allowed to run with or without the ball and must always have at least one foot on the ground. However, you can go as fast as you want without breaking these rules.

The event will raise funds for the Colon Cancer Guernsey charity

At Guernsey Walking Football we invite everyone to watch walking football at its best. This also includes a game between a women’s and a men’s team. In which other team sport do the two genders play at the highest level on an equal footing? At the end there will also be a demonstration game showing how our game can be played by everyone at any level at the same time.
