The Community Trust has a new FREE course of Football Fans in Training (FFIT), commencing Thursday 17 January.

The 13-week programme includes an initial health check on the first session, with 13 weekly sessions being split between classroom health and education and physical activity sessions.

The sessions start at 6pm until 7:30pm and the group will be meeting at the main entrance, 15 minutes before the session.

Male participants, aged 35-65, are eligible to take part in this programme if they have a BMI of 28+ or a waist size of 38+ inches.

Want to get active?

Masters Football is a chance for 35+ year-olds to continue playing 5-aside football in a social environment. The sessions will take place outdoor on a Monday evening at: Playfootball Blackpool, Garstang Road West, FY3 7JH,  6pm–7pm.

Walking Football Under-60s

Blackpool FC Community Trust is launching a new Walking Football session - open to anyone under the age of 60. Walking football is played 5-aside with specific rules in place, such as; no running, no contact between players and the ball remaining below head height.

This is an opportunity for all abilities to restart playing football at a slower pace, but also introduces the sport to people who may have never considered it in the past. 

This will, again, take place at Playfootball Blackpool at 6pm–7pm on a Monday.

And for Over-50s

In addition to our existing Walking Football provision The Trust also has a new Over-50s session starting. This will take place at Blackpool and the Fylde College, Ashfield Road, FY2 0HB, commencing; Wednesday 9 January, 5:30pm – 6:30pm, in the sports hall. 

Can’t make that time? More sessions run every Monday and Thursday (excluding bank holidays) at PlayFootball:

Monday: 4.30pm-5.30pm

Thursday: 4.15pm-5.15pm

The sessions are £4 each.
