Walking Football can boost your mental health!

6 March 2023

Since retiring, Peter had struggled with his mental health. He was feeling low, getting easily out of breath and hadn't kicked a football in almost 30 years.

That's when he heard about the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme’s Walking Football project that runs five times a week.

The sessions not only provide a great opportunity for people of all abilities to partake in physical exercise, they also are a friendly social space for participants to interact with one another to help their mental health.

"The social aspect is just as good as the physical, I've never felt so great and couldn't recommend it more!" said Peter.
