Dawlish Women Walking Football Team

Who we are


The first walking football group for women aged 40+ in South Devon.It was set up in early 2022 following on from an Age Uk session.Interest has grown and we now have between 20 and 25 members and interest is still high.The players meet regularly once an week to train and also on occasional extra ad hoc sessions for specific players or skill sets.We are keen to involve women who have not played before or those looking to return to sport which is less intense,physically.We have formed a partnership with the local primary school who allow us to use their football pitch for free and have also been fortunate enough to gain local sponsorship and grants for initial costs.We cannot underestimate the positive effect playing walking football has had on our physical and mental health.
