These boots are made for walking… Fun, Fitness and Football’ – See how two of the GTG team keep active with Walking Football
GTG Physiotherapist Kay Pires and GTG Physiotherapy Assistant Marion Marquis are no strangers to having fun and keeping fit. They both understand the positive benefits of physical activity on good health and wellbeing being regular members of the Guernsey Walking Football club.
Marions says “our ethos is Fun, Fitness and Football. Anyone can come along and have a go. We have people who have had heart surgery, mental health problems, knee and ankle operations. The club encourage doctor’s surgeries and health professionals to recommend people to join us.” The club have taken part in a ‘murrati’ against Jersey and won! We also have English teams come over to Guernsey for a tournament, as well as local corporate team tournaments. The club also supports days like The Bobby Moore Foundation/ Sports Commission. The emphasis is on getting fit in a gentle non-contact way.
They would encourage anyone to come along and join them. Visit the Guernsey Walking Football Club facebook page to see what the club gets up to and spot the GTG physio team members out of uniform! Or e-mail the club firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or details.
