W.A. Regional Walking Football Tournament 2022

The Association of Walking Football Australia in partnership with Healthway held it’s first Regional Walking Football Tournament.

The event helped spread the LiveLighter message to Regional WA.

Some 60+ players and supporters attended this inaugural Regional Festival, held at the Mandurah Aquatic And Recreation Centre on Sunday 9th October 2022. The festival featured Men’s competition in the 50+ and 60+ age groups.

In the 50s category Wanneroo City Soccer Club topped the table in the league and came a very close second in the play-off final losing 1-0 to the Dribblers.
In the 60+ category, the Royals made a clean sweep. Not only did Royals head the table in the league, they also won the play-off final, [beating local side, Peel Boomers 2 – 0 in the final].

With teams travelling from a far as Wanneroo the event was a great success and its is hoped with continued support from Healthway, this will become an annual event drawing teams more teams as the participation in the sport in Regional WA grows. The health benefits it provides coupled with a heathy diet will hopefully keep our mature footballers active for many years to come. All in all this was a great day!
