NLPD Walking Football

Walking football is a great way to help you to stay fit & potentially relieve some of the symptoms of Parkinson's.

We have a very good set up with Everton in the Community who put on a session every Monday 12.30-2pm at the Everton Hub. This is a very relaxed session which is more about enjoyment more than anything else. EiTC also offer other services and facilities for us to use.

Then on a Friday, we play at the Brunswick Centre in Bootle, from 11.15am-12.30pm. This is a fabulous session organised by Stuart Carrington & assisted by Keith Johnson, both of whom have great experience in football & are the management team of the Parkinson's England Walking Football Team. The warm ups, and drills are aimed at improving you as a player & preparing us for competitive play. Anyone with Parkinson's is welcome to join in. £1 per person.
