08: Case Studies.
Walking Football Sponsorship
Recently famed by the Barclays TV advert, Walking Football is a new pastime actively encouraging people aged over 50 to continue playing football.
One of the first over 50s Walking Football clubs was established in Hampshire 6 years ago, and in this time the sport has become increasingly popular amongst senior people who may have mobility problems.
There are now over 220 registered clubs all over the UK. Walking Football offers these individuals an alternative way to keep active whilst also getting older people to enjoy physical exercise.
Walking Football is a slower, more practical version of football where any player caught running grants a free kick to the opposition, creating a fun, non-contact sport.
The club was designed to tackle inactivity and social isolation whilst providing an opportunity to interact with other like-minded individuals.
How GWP Protective helped
In April 2015, Farnborough’s over 50’s Walking Football club embarked on the first ever international Walking Football tournament to Portugal.
Sponsored by the international tax and wealth management company Blevins Franks, teams from Farnborough, Hampshire and the Soccor Olhanense Strollers (SOS) joined in the over 50’s tournament at Olhao.
GWP Protective supported the Farnborough Walking Football team by supplying them with specialist Zarges aluminium kit skips to transport vital kit and medical equipment on this tour.
Used to store the teams’ kit, physio bags, defibrillators, crutches, Cryocuffs and club footballs, it was also suitable for air freight and lockable to ensure that all items were kept safe too.
