Walking Football (Mixed)

A sport that has received an unexpected profile after featuring in a recent advert on TV! Not aimed at a specific age group but perfect for those whose circumstance dictates that walking would be better than running.

Taunton Walking Football - Tuesdays 10.00am @ Taunton Vale Sports Club. Outdoors on 3G Astroturf

Bridgwater Walking Football - Wednesdays 11.00am at Hinkley Point pitches, Bath Road. Outdoors on 3G Astroturf

Both of these groups have restarted post lockdown. Details of further groups around the County will appear here as they emerge from restrictions. If you have a group that has restarted and would like it promoted here please email Stewart scollins@sasp.co.uk

Walking Netball (Ladies)

Walking Netball has proven to be a popular alternative to the faster paced game, particularly for those who for whatever reason find the physical demands of traditional Netball no longer appropriate. Tuesday mornings 9.15 am at Taunton Vale Sports Club TA2 6LL. Indoors throughout the winter months, Outdoors when good weather permits during Summer.
