Oxford's Friendliest Walking Football Club - New Players Always Required

Oxford United Walking Football Club offers a slower paced version of the game for men over 50 and women aged over 18

We are a friendly club that welcomes new players at our regular playing sessions held at the Oxford Sports Park on Horspath Road on Wednesday evenings, a Women's session on Friday evenings at the Oxford Sports Park, and The Oxford Academy in Littlemore on Saturday mornings. The club has a wide membership from all walks of life who enjoy getting together to play football in a friendly and supportive environment. For members that wish to, there is also the opportunity to play competitively in local and overseas tournaments as well as charity events.

OUWFC WALKATHON FUNDRAISER IN AID OF DOWNS SYNDROME OXFORD

Oxford United Walking Football Club are taking part in the 21 Walkathon this year, to help raise funds for the Downs Syndrome Oxford group (including the Oxford Tri-Stars).
 
This will be held at the end of June, Saturday 29th 2024 at 12 noon until Sunday 30th at 9am. It involves us walking round the track at the Wheatley Playing Fields for 21 hours in total, and we must always have at least one person on the track at all times (even overnight). There will be at least 19 teams there walking, and obviously we'd like for Oxford United Walking Football Club to raise the most money!
 
Teams can be made up of whatever people you wish: mixed families, families and friends, colleagues, anyone!
 
We will also be having a Tombola stall to raise funds.
 
Some things to consider:
 
There is no number limit for a team, there is no age limit for team members.
Team members can walk, be pushed or even be pulled along.
The more in a team, the less each person will need to walk.
You can make a walking rota or completely wing the whole event.
 
The only ask is that there is a minimum of one member from your team on the track at all times during the 21 hours.
 
A warm-up session will happen before we start to get everyone ready to go!
 
Team members can come and go during the day, stay for the morning, stay for the afternoon or just take on the night hours walking (which I must add to keep those feet going will be supported by an overnight silent disco, oh yeah you will!
 
So we are asking for your help!
 
If you can do any of the following we would very much appreciate it:
 
A. Join us in walking round the track, for a minimum of one hour, any time during the day or night (you can do as many hours as you like!)
B. Sponsor our team for any amount (on our JustGiving platform, where you can be anonymous if you wish)
C. Donate a prize for our Tombola
 
Here's the link to our JustGiving page (connected via the Downs Syndrome Oxford page), where you can find out a bit more, and if you're able to make a donation, however small, it will be much appreciated.  https://www.justgiving.com/page/oxfordutdwfcwalkathon21
 
If you can donate a prize that would be amazing too, and please email me the details so we can make a list, as we will need lots of small prizes.
Thank you very much for anything you can do to help with this amazing and worthwhile local charity. If you are able to support us by walking then please email Ken Wroe kenwroe8@gmail.com then we will add you to our Whatsapp group to discuss arrangements etc (if you wish to be added!).
 
Looking forward to hearing from you soon

Players Wanted - Over 50's, Over 60's, and Ladies!

Both men and women of all abilities are invited to join the club. However, our A Team Manager, Paul Chambers, is particularly interested in finding experienced footballers - Men over 50 - to play in some forthcoming local tournaments. We are also looking for Over 60's, and Ladies to play for our teams.

Don't be fooled by the term 'walking' football. The tournament games, especially at Bisham Abbey, are very competitive and include some excellent footballers. See the Men's section for a video showing highlights of a 2019 oversees tournament we competed in. 

Get in touch for more details and bring your experience and footballing skills to Oxford United: kenwroe8@gmail.com.
