Eastern Suburbs Football Association club Maroubra United recently hosted a successful Walking Football ‘Come & Try Session’ on Saturday 14th of May at Coral Sea Park.
Sixteen participants joined in on all the action in a bid to be part of what is an ever growing part of the sport.
Eastern Suburbs General Manager Bill Kostandas paid a glowing tribute to Maroubra United’s Frank Friedmann who was the brains behind getting Walking Football on the map in the area.
“On behalf of ESFA I am thrilled that Walking Football has kicked off.
“In its second week at Coral Sea Park, Frank Friedmann from Maroubra United Football Club has done a lot of great work in getting Walking Football up and running in the Eastern Suburbs.
“Due to Frank’s passion and drive for Walking Football I am sure the sport will grow very quickly as word gets out what a great sport Walking Football is.
“Walking Football is a great sport for all ages.
“The benefits of Walking Football in terms of physical and mental health are so good.
“It is a great way for people of all ages to either have an introduction to Football or be reengaged to the sport in a fun and controlled environment.
“Walking Football is for all – doesn’t matter what age you are everyone is welcome.”
