We have introduced a split between the 2 sides of the hall on Mondays, with our normal game on one side and a deliberately slower-paced game on the other.
Both use the same non-contact, play-for-fun rules, but the slower-paced group enables new joiners to start their walking football journey and build their confidence amongst players who allow a little more space to pick a pass.
It is also noticeable that those of us who are less mobile are able to participate more in games, getting much more time on the ball.
The session also enables players returning from injury (or after weeks spent lying on a beach) to ease back into the game.
All-in-all, it has proved to be a real success - come and try it out.
With us, it's not about the result,
it's the quality of the experience
We are amazingly friendly,
so you will get help all the way
Didn't play since school? Me neither!
Work on your skills and your fitness,
at your own pace
The women-only session is flourishing, but we are always keen to welcome new players - of any age and skill level.
Playing non-contact football, the emphasis is on having fun.
Even if you have never played before, we are sure you will enjoy the sessions, where we will introduce you to the rules, run a warm-up, practice basic skills, then pick sides for some games.

All you need are trainers and comfortable clothes to play in - and a drink to keep you hydrated.
You could also bring a friend, of course!
We agree with their analysis
and have lots of personal stories which back it up.
..but this video, broadcast on That's Salisbury TV
in September 2017, explains our approach
and suggests why it would be great
to join us as we expand our group
..and Greg Potts, the author of this article,
used us as a basis for airing his thoughts on
the dangers of competition damaging
the fun atmosphere prevalent in our sessions
