Social Session

Turf Moor Elite Training Centre (Harry Potts Way, Turf Moor, BB10 4BX)

Monday – 11:00 – 12:00 and Friday – 12:00 – 13:00

All sessions are free of charge and take place during Lancashire school term-time only.

These sessions are aimed at both males and females aged 50 and above, but anyone 18+ is welcome to get involved in this slower-paced version of the beautiful game. Each session focuses on friendly football games, varying between 5-a-side and 7-a-side teams – perfect for those who want to increase their physical activity levels, make friends, improve their mental wellbeing or even try something new.

Each session is for fun and participation – no matter what age you are! We will also host friendly tournaments at Turf Moor throughout the season that everyone can get involved in.

Development Sessions

Turf Moor Elite Training Centre (Harry Potts Way, Turf Moor, BB10 4BX)

Thursday 11:00 – 12:00

All sessions are free of charge and take place during Lancashire school term-time only.

We also provide the opportunity for individuals to progress as a player by running weekly development sessions at Turf Moor. These sessions are for those who want to develop their walking football game further. Each week will involve a structured plan focusing on different aspects of football at walking pace.

The Thursday sessions are also for those who want to represent BFCitC within competitive fixtures and tournaments, giving participants the chance to put on the famous Claret and Blue and compete against teams in the local area.

The following points are applicable for both our Walking Football social sessions and development sessions…

Attire: Shorts or jogging bottoms with a t-shirt. It is also essential that you wear trainers (no studs/blades or walking boots). Shin pads are optional for our social sessions, but they are compulsory for our Thursday development sessions.

Sign-up process: All new participants must contact Abby Turner, Head of Health and Wellbeing, on 01282 704716 or a.turner@burnleyfc.com before attending any session. Appropriate forms and checks will need completing before anyone can take part in the sessions to assess individuals and their suitability.
