Dorset Walking Football League looking for new teams

It's been another successful season for the League

The Dorset Walking Football League is looking for new teams for the 2023/24 season.


It's been another successful season for the League, with Amesbury WF winning the over-50s League and Bournemouth Reds winning the over-60s League.

We are looking for more teams to join the League, whether you have an established walking football group or have a few friends who are keen to get together and form a new team to join.

Currently, there is an over-50s and an over-60s League but it is under constant review and if there are enough teams in other age groups interested, we will start a new League. The Dorset Walking Football League was formed in 2018 with just 5 teams and we have grown from that to a group of 14 teams.

We will be holding our next AGM in August 2023 and you will be very welcome to attend. If you want more information please contact Alan Sparkes on 07547552394 or


The Dorset Walking Football League are planning to set up a Ladies League in the next few months so if you have interest in joining a team, let us know. We are holding an Open Day at the Purbeck Centre, Worget Road, Wareham, BH20 4PH on Sunday 3 September 2023 from 1.30pm. If you would like to try walking football, just come along. Again, contact Alan Sparkes for more information - contact details above.

Remember that for both men and women it has been proved that walking football helps both physical and mental health.
