Last Season during 2022, the regional format continued to reduce traveling with teams playing in either the North & East Division or the West Division depending on their locations.

More than 350 players took part with 21 teams offering opportunities for over 35s to play during the ‘summer’ season.

Walking Football | Age 50+

The monthly cross county fixture programme brings all teams together in a round robin format. 

6-A-Side - Age 50+ & 65+ Categories - Once a month games programme from March to October (Sunday AM)

With no running, jogging or heading – and tackling with reduced physical contact – Walking Football is a fun and safe way for players to enjoy football and socialise together. 

There are currently walking football centres in Carlisle, Penrith, Workington and Gretna so there are plenty of opportunities to play if you’re interested in getting involved.

If you’re interested in entering a team or would like more information, please contact or telephone 01900 511800.

The AGM for the Cumberland FA Walking Football League takes place on Tuesday 21 February so get in touch soon and get involved!

Last season 11 teams entered the league and cup competitions with more than 200 women registered.
