Women's Walking Football

Our Foundation Women’s team have fantastic links with L.I.S.A (Lady Imps Supporter Association) with many of the team being fans of Lincoln City Fc and Lincoln City Women and this team gives them the chance to enjoy the game.

The team train once a week on a Saturday Morning 9-10 am and welcome anyone who wants to start playing football or get back into playing at a slower pace - the only condition is that you can’t run! The sessions are led by our fantastic coach Kat who helps develop each player by increasing their fitness and tactical awareness of the beautiful game through drills, challenges and simply playing.

For football fans, the beautiful game is a gift for life.

But the opportunity to play football, and the physical capability to do so, has traditionally enjoyed a limited shelf life whether that is due to injury, physical ability or lack of opportunity. Walking Football is changing that!

Every Saturday

9 - 10 am

on the AstroTurf at the LNER Stadium, LN5 8LD.

Positively Impact your Mental Health With Sport

Even short bursts of regular exercise has a proven positive impact on mental health. Which is why joining us for Walkiing Football could be the first step for better mental health for you. Here are just a few ways in which sport and physical activity can positively impact your mental health.

  • Improve your Mood: Exercise releases feel-good hormones, which tell your brain to improve your mood. Recent studies showed that people who categorised themselves as feeling low noted a significant improvement in mood after they undertook physical activity.

  • Reduce Stress: People who partake in regular physical activity often have lower stress levels.

  • Increase Self Esteem: Exercise can often help you to feel better about yourself.

  • Tackle Depression and Anxiety: GP's often prescribe regular exercise as part of a Mental Health programme to help sufferers of Depression and Anxiety. Taking part in regular activity and sport empowers individuals to self manage their recovery.

  • Sleep Better: Physical Activity will help to tire you out during the day and therefore help you to get a better nights sleep.

  • Connect with new people: Sporting activities provide the opportunity to connect with like-minded new people, without the pressure of finding a common ground.
