Farnham Flares Walking Football

A Fantastic Way For The Over 50s To Get Back Into Playing Competitive Football.
At Farnham Town Football Club, our aim is to involve ourselves with all elements of the local community, helping to keep people active and involved in the game that we all love for as long as possible, which is why we teamed up with Waverley Borough Council in 2020 to launch Farnham Town Flares, Farnham’s first walking football team.

We now have a squad of over 40 members who compete in local competitions and enjoy a number of social events.

This season, the Farnham Town Flares have Over 50s, Over 60s and Multiage (one player over 70) teams competing in the Surrey FA League and Cup competitions against teams such as Chelsea, Fulham, AFC Wimbledon, Woking and the current league and cup champions, Godalming, and the Over 50s also compete in the Sunday Middlesex 50+ League.

Although walking football is aimed at people over the age of 50, the Farnham Town Flares also welcome those players who fall below this age and would like to continue playing but, for whatever reason, can no longer compete in a vets’ team.

So, what is walking football?  And where can I play?

Walking football is normally played six-a-side. It is a three-touch, non-contact sport, where you must keep one foot on the ground at all times to avoid running. The ball may not go over head height and you may not tackle from behind or from the side.

The Farnham Town Flares walking football team trains every Wednesday night from 7:30pm to 8:30pm on the 3G synthetic turf pitches at Weydon School, Weydon Lane, Farnham GU9 8UG.

Club membership is £10.00 per season, which goes towards equipment and insurance, while the Wednesday night session fee is £6.00 but your first session is ABSOLUTELY FREE!

If you’re over 45 and fancy joining the Farnham Town Flares walking football squad, simply contact Andy and he’ll get you along to one of our Tuesday evening sessions at Weydon.
