Who are we?

The organisers have been involved in the growth and development of Walking Football in the UK since early 2014.


Mick Quinn

Mick Quinn is a Member of The Society of Sports Therapists and has a BSc (Hons) Degree in Applied Sports Therapy. He has worked in professional football with Brentford FC, Wycombe Wanderers and Crawley Town.

He set up his over 50s Walking Football club in Cove, Hampshire as a way of introducing late stage rehabilitation patients back into physical activity over 4 years ago. All the principles and foundations of the Club and its rules are built on peer reviewed medical research with measurable facts and evidence, and not solely on individual opinions.
