Sunday 28 August will see the launch of the ‘Pat Van Den Hauwe Walking Football League’ and there are still places available for you and your friends to register a team*.
Open to men aged over 35, the monthly league will be fronted up by the former Blues defender who will be on hand to offer players his football tips and advice on how to be crowned champions.
Walking football is designed specifically for men aged 35-50 and is ideal for those who want to keep fit, have fun, learn new skills and socialise at the same time.
The ‘Pat Van Den Hauwe Walking Football League’ is free to enter and will be housed at the Powerleague on Whittle Street, Everton. It will be running on the last Sunday of every month and there will be the opportunity for players to win prizes including trophies, matchday tickets and stadium tour tickets.
A group of players from the charity’s walking football programme made their debut on the hallowed turf of Goodison Park during half-time of Tuesday’s 4-0 EFL Cup win over Yeovil Town. Led by former Blues left-back Van Den Hauwe, the men took part in a coaching session in front of the Everton faithful.
Funded by Sport England, Everton in the Community’s walking football group is part of the Active Blues programme run in partnership with Edge Hill University.
