On the Sunday evening of the conference, a game of walking football has been arranged.
The rules are broadly similar to 5 a side but no running, whether you have the ball or not, a maximum of three consecutive touches, no heading and the ball doesn’t go above head height. The game will take place outdoors, on astro for an hour from 5pm at the University Sports Centre. We will meet at the hotel reception at 4.30pm.
Please note, trainers are fine as slightly lighter balls will be used. No heavy boots or footwear with studs designed for grass pitches.
Players are asked to donate £3 to cover the cost of pitch hire and to leave their egos at home. Everyone is welcome to attend, it doesn’t matter if you’ve never played or if you play every Sunday.
