WALKING FOOTBALL FOR ALL

 

   

BWFC have been working with BID Services, a charity who work in partnership with people with a sensory impairment, as well as those with a physical disability or mental health, to promote walking football.

Chairman Paul Murtagh was asked to provide advice and deliver a presentation on how walking football can be embraced by the deaf and hard of hearing by adapting the rules to meet their needs.

The first session began on Monday and was supported and refereed by Paul who explained the rules through a sign language interpreter.

The weekly session is funded by the BID charity for the next 5 weeks, held at Ladywood Community And Health Centre B16 8RP from 14:00-15:30 on Mondays so why not meet new friends, get fit & give it a try. ITS FREE! 😁over 35’s and all abilities welcome!

Try something new for the activities! We’re running 6weekly session from Monday 24th February to Monday 30th March. Join us for a short kick about or for all of the session- whatever suits you!
