Our team goes from strength to strength.  We have 3 women that play, in fact Emma Baxter is nearly 39 years old and our youngest player at Pafos United, whilst Roy Blatchford who was until a recent injury was playing 3 times a week celebrated his 81st birthday on 20th September. Happy Belated birthday Roy!!

Welcome back to some old faces who have been away for the summer, Paul John, Brian Farquhar, and soon John Kelly will be back throwing himself around the goalmouth! We also look forward to welcoming back Andy Hack (74) & Jayne Hack (75) shortly.

Big Shout out to Bob Quinnell, who sadly injured his shoulder recently and has had to have MRI scans and results weren't particularly positive - he's had to withdraw from the forthcoming NFS Europe.com Mini League 1 that starts Saturday 28th September 2019.  Get well soon Bob and hope we'll see you back on the pitch very soon.

Charlie in UK, after playing with Havant & Waterlooville's "Many Shades of Grey" award winning Walking Football club. Thank you to all players but particularly Stuart Russell (Secretary) and John Morgan (Fixtures & Festivals Secretary) for all welcoming me and letting me join in with you today. It was a great experience and it just shows how many different variations of rules there are to Walking Football. You've given me some ideas to go back to Pafos United with and see if we can implement them to improve our games too. Hopefully one day we will receive a visit from you guys in 2020, lets start that dialogue Stuart?..........Thank you guys for your hospitality, the biscuits in the clubhouse after the matches........Pafos Utd, watch this space everyone.NEW FORUM

Each team will play 2 matches each Saturday that will consist of 20 mins each way.  Referees are organised (thank you Graham). The Mini League is sponsored by Pafos United main sponsor and they will provide the Trophies for the league (thank you Mark).  There will be an awards celebration BBQ hopefully on the last day of the MIni League 1 (scheduled for 28th March 2020).  Watch this space and if you aren't in a squad, or are interested in taking part at some point in the future or want to come along to regular weekly sessions of Pafos United please come and support us and watch to see what the fuss about Walking Football is all about.

HOT NEWS/UPDATE

Pafos United Walking Football is going from strength to strength and as such we have decided to try and add some competitive spirit into things. The main reason for this is that there are still no other teams in Cyprus who have come forward to challenge us to any matches. We are happy to help by the way if anyone wants to start a team locally or anywhere else on the island of course.

 

So how are we adding some competitive spirit i hear you ask? Well, we are about to commence our Mini League 1 that is sponsored by our own main sponsor NFSEurope.com and will feature 4 teams with 10 players (from Pafos Utd) in each squad. On the last Saturday of each month each team will play 2 matches (each match is 40 mins, 20 mins each way) and there will be points up for grabs! 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw with an added bonus point for a team scoring 5 goals or more in a match! The teams will be called: Peyia Forest, Tala Park Rangers, Mesogi County & Coral Bay Rovers and We have nominated our captains: Neil Bushe (Peyia Forest), Tony Baxter (TPR), Poul Mansfeld (Mesogi County) & Mick Roberts (Coral Bay Rovers).

 

Look out for our monthly results, Top scorers, and the league tables. We are playing these matches on Saturdays 26/9/19, 26/10/19, 30/11/19, 25/1/20, 29/2/20, & 28/3/20. So by the end of Mini League 1 each team will have played 12 matches.

 

All matches will be officiated by our own referees: Graham Clark, Mark Hignett & Dave Hatton. All will be keeping tabs on scorers, and any disciplinary issues as well as there will be Blue card (Sin Bin), Yellow card & Red cards used if necessary, but we do hope that this won't be the case.

 

If you want to come along and support a team, or just watch for fun, we will be playing from 8.30am on each of those Saturdays at Fair Game Sport Center, Industrial Area of Tremithousa.

 

The Favourite at the moment appears to be: Coral Bay Rovers with a strong squad highly fancied to take the first league title. Once this all ends on 28/3/20 - we are hopeful of having a BBQ, awards presentation and live band after the final matches. Then in April - we will change all the teams round, perhaps have new team names and start Mini League 2.

Get fit & stay active

It is important to stay fit, active and healthy whatever your age. As you get older, regular exercise and playing a physical sport such as walking football can help you build and improve your strength, increase your core stability, help you lose or maintain weight and improve muscles. It can sometimes be hard to keep steady on your feet, but this sport can also help to improve your balance.

Meet new people

Meet NEW people with the same outlook on life and likes to get involved in new types of sports, which is not too much of a strain on the body. No-one is immune to loneliness andwhatever your age, you can grow your social circle of friends, rekindle old friendships and thrive in the camaraderie of a team sport.

 

 

A path to recovery

It is said that returning to exercise after an illness or injury can be really hard. Walking football is an ideal rehabilitation for those recovering from physical or mental health concerns or issues. Its free of prejudice and full of encouragement.

Relax and have fun

Lets say that walking football is really a sport where your play at your own pace and it would be hypocritical of a sport like walking football to expect you to run before you can walk and it is the taking part that counts. Challenge yourself in low pressure, highly rewarding environments where enjoyment is the ultimate goal for all involved.  Fortunately, there are many ways to play without needing any footballing experience whatsoever. Take a look around our site to discover how you can play walking football today.
