If you are over 50 and love football, why not give Walking Football a try, with Vintage Celtic, Tameside's first Walking Football team...
We have opportunities to suit each individual, whether you just want to play once a week, want to play in friendlies or have that competitive edge for Monthly League fixtures, we can deliver them all for you.
Just under one hundred people have played Walking Football with us in the past two years and boosted the Trophy Cabinet here at Bower Fold with thirteen new Trophies/Cups.
We like to have a social side of Vintage Celtic to compliment the playing side, with regular Match Day trips to Stalybridge Celtic, Quiz Nights, Curry Nights, etc, so once you come along and have a game with us, you'll be one of the family.
Each of our sessions are officiated by a qualified Manchester FA, referee, and the games are non-contact, no over head height and definately, no running.
We are mainly over 60's, but are looking for more over 50's to get involved, so we can provide more opportunites at that particular age group.
Just so you can get a flavour of what we deliver, the following our our Walking Football commitments over the next couple of weeks -
Friday 27th April - Over 60's Tournament at Fleetwood Town FC
Thursday 3rd May - Friendly fixture at Boundary Park v Oldham Athletic FC
Friday 4th May - Friendly fixture v Wakefield Wanderers (A)
Thursday 10th May - Over 60's monthly league at Heywood Sports Village
